This was my first time frying - really frying - tofu at home. I hate all the wasted oil/annoying clean up that deep frying involves, so instead I went with a "shallow fry" using about 1/4 cup of oil. Things worked out great - the tofu texture was spot on, and I was only burned once by a flying drop of insanely-hot oil! Good times. :)

Yum! one of my favorite (I don't make it, since it's fried, almost ever) is tofu dipped in a mustard sauce and then bread crumbs and fried. Yum.

Looks awesome! If you're gonna do kung pao tofu, you might as well fry it up right!

Ohh, that looks delicious. I'm similarly put off by the frying process, but maybe I should give it another go for this.

Amy, the process was much less messy and once I remembered to use the mesh splatter cover that was stashed away (because we never fry at home, I'd totally forgotten we had one). Ours is like this:
