3. In a no-stick pan, add 4-5 tablespoons oil, fry each side of tofu balls until they turn golden brown, and put outside for later use. In total, this step will take 10-15 minutes.

4. In a no-stick pan, add 1 tablespoon of oil, then prepared teriyaki sauce, then add tofu balls and blanched broccoli. Serve with rice.

Tips: when you blanch broccoli, add some salt and oil to keep the green color.
