Drain tofu cakes well. Wrap in a clean kitchen towel, place on a plate
and invert another plate on top. Place a 1 pound weight such as canned
food, book, etc on the top place. Let stand 30 minutes, unwrap and drain.
This may be done anytime in advance and the tofu refrigerated.
Slice the pressed tofu into squares, triangles, or other shapes about
3/8 inch thick. Heat oil to 350F. Fr tofu, a few pieces at a time, until
puffy and golden brown - about 6 to 8 minutes.
