In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients for the sauce. Set aside.
In another small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and water mixture. Set aside.
Dry the tofu. You can wrap the tofu in towels and place a plate on top of it until excess liquid is absorbed by the towels. You can also opt to use a tofu press. Afterwards, slice them into 1" (2.5cm) cubes.
Sprinkle the salt on the tofu cubes. Add the cornstarch. Coat the tofu well.
In a large pan, heat around 1 1/2 tbsp of oil and then fry the tofu cubes until crisp and golden. You will need to turn around the tofu cubes to get each side crisp.
Take out the tofu from the pan and set aside.
In the same pan, sauté the onions and mushrooms in a little oil over medium high heat. Add in the sauce mixture. Add in the crispy tofu and cook it in the sauce sauce until it boils. Lower the heat.
Give the cornstarch slurry a good mix since the starch tends to settled in the bottom. Pour in the cornstarch mixture while mixing. Mix until the sauce has thickened. Afterwards, turn off the heat.
Serve the tofu and then drizzle with a little sesame oil and add some spring onions, if desired.
Serve with a bowl of rice or noodles and enjoy while hot! I had mine with my super easy curry fried rice! Also, you can check out the video below to see 3 saucy tofu recipes. :)
