  2. Heat up cooking oil in pan. Put the tofu in to fry until one side becomes golden (Let them stay for a while). Turn over and fry the other side. If you get thick slices, slightly fry the edges.  

  3. Turn the fire off, discard extra oil. Option 1: add salt and pepper and toasted until each piece is well coated. Option 2.:place the tofu slices in serving plate and then sprinkle green onion, salt and pepper evenly. Place the remaining on one side of the serving plate, working as a dry dip.
