1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1. Heat wok or fry-pan, add the tablespoon of vegetable oil and then the pieces of bamboo shoot and bamboo pith and stir-fry for one minute. Remove from the pan and set aside.
2. Add soy sauce, salt, and pepper to the fried items and stir well; then add the tangerine peel, mushrooms, and the bell pepper pieces and set aside.
3. Mash the bean curd and mix in the flour and cornstarch, and then the hot sauce. Mix this with the other ingredients and stir well.
4. Heat half of the rest of the vegetable oil and drop two tablespoons of the entire mixture in and fry first on one side then the other, flattening somewhat early in the frying process. Fry each side until golden brown, remove and drain, and repeat until all are fried. Then serve.
