Been thinking about the problem getting the tofu to come out crispy.

The only thing I can think of is that maybe the oil isn't hot enough.

You are deepfrying the cubes, aren't you? Another trick you might
try is to double fry them. Do 'em all once, let 'em cool a bit then
refry them. Anyway++here's a couple of recipes for you to practice
on. They're from the Ozzie cookbooks Mark brought over. BTW,
"shallots" refers to scallions rather than what we call shallots.

1: Cut tofu into 1 1/2 cm cubes.

2: Heat oil in wok, add garlic, cook for 30 seconds, remove and
discard garlic. Add tofu to wok in batches, stir-fry gently until
lightly browned; remove from wok.

3: Add beans, onion and carrot, stir-fry until vegetables are almost
tender. Add broccoli, celery and shallots, sauces, paste, sugar,
vinegar and spice, stir-fry for 2 minutes. Stir in tofu with blended
cornflour and water; stir-fry gently until sauce boils and thickens

Makes 6 servings.

Best made just before serving. Freeze: Not suitable. Microwave: Not
