Remove your tofu from the pack, place on a sheet of kitchen roll on a plate and place another piece of kitchen roll on top. Place another plate on top and weigh down (I use a large cook book) for 10 minutes. This squeezes all the moisture out of the tofu.
Whilst this is being pressed, in a bowl stir together your cornflour, salt and paprika (if using).
Chop your tofu into 1 inch chunks and coat each piece in the flour mixture all over.
Heat some oil in a frying pan, I usually shallow fry so the oil is around 5mm deep in the pan.
Add your tofu but don't let the pan get too crowded otherwise they will stick together.
Allow the tofu to fry for around 3 minutes, then turn each piece and repeat until you have a nice crispy coating on each side.
Enjoy with your favourite noodle dish or curry or stirred into a salt and pepper mix with onions and chillies.
