1 To make ponzu sauce, combine tamari, 1 tablespoon water, lemon juice and rice wine vinegar in a small jug. Set aside until required. Place flour on a large plate. Toss tofu in flour to coat.
2 Heat half the oil in a wok over a high heat. Cook tofu, stirring, for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Transfer to a plate. Cover to keep warm.
3 Heat remaining oil over a high heat. Add mushrooms, carrot, corn and capsicum to wok. Cook, stirring, for 4-5 minutes or until almost tender. Add gai lan. Cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
