1/2 carrot, peeled and sliced
1 Tablespoon cornstarch mixed with one tablespoon cold water
5 Napa cabbage leaves, blanched

2. Heat wok, add the oil, and deep-fry the tofu until golden, stirring slowly and carefully so as not to destroy their shape. When golden, drain on paper towels, and set aside. Remove oil and discard all but one tablespoon of the oil, or reserve it for another use after filtering it.Br>
