In a blender mix all ingredients called for the sauce.
In a bowl place cubed tofu and add some soy sauce , salt and pepper to it.
Heat up a wok or a non stick pan with oil on high heat.
Add 2 teaspoon of oil .
Place tofu in the pan and cook until crisp on both sides. Keep aside.
In the same wok heat 2 tablespoon oil

Sautee for 2 minutes .
Add in the orange zest.
Add in the bell peppers, sweet pepper and saute for a minute.
Now add in the prepared sauce mix and cook it for 2-3 minutes until nice and thick.
Add in the crisp tofu and coat well with the sauce.
Taste test and adjust the seasoning.
Add more water if gravy is very thick.
Serve warm with noodles or rice.
You may directly toss noodles or rice in this stir fry and serve as orange fried noodles/ rice. If you have time on hand you may marinate the tofu for a longer time. I keep it this way in the refrigerator overnight sometimes. You may use veggies of your choice like okra, baby corn , bok choy . Adjust spices to your spice level. You may sub tofu with paneer. This stir fry pairs well with noodles as well as rice. The gravy thickens after cooling , keep it thin if you are eating way later than it’s cooked.
