Fried Tofu with lemon grass



Tofu is one of the list ingredients that I always have in the fridge, to make this recipe more easier you can buy fried tofu mostly available in Asian market, so you can skip fry the tofu and ready to slice them and ready to cook with other ingredients in no time, this type of dish recommended to serve with white jasmine rice is the best, Can be vegetarian or vegan dish just replace fish sauce with soy sauce.
