Place the sauce pot over a medium heat and cook, stirring continuously, until the mixture starts to bubble. Once bubbling, reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring, for 2-3 min further or until glossy and slightly thickened. Set aside.

3 Fry tofu

Chop the tofu into cubes and sprinkle it with salt. Turn the cubes in the remaining corn starch. Heat a generous amount of oil in a pan over a medium-high heat. Once hot, add the coated tofu cubes and fry them for 10 min, turning occasionally, until crisp and golden. Once crisp, transfer the tofu to kitchen paper. Reserve the pan.

4 Boil rice

Meanwhile, rinse the jasmine rice. Add the rice, measured water and a pinch of salt to a pan with a lid and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 10-12 min or until the water is absorbed and the rice is cooked. Remove from the heat and keep covered until serving.
