  Catsup 15 Milliliter (1 Tablespoon)
  Reduced sodium soy sauce 15 Milliliter (1 Tablespoon)
  Hot chili oil 1⁄8 Teaspoon (Homemade / Purchased, Adjust Quantity As Per Taste)
  Firm tofu 1 Pound, rinsed, drained and cut into 1/2 inch cubes (455 Gram)
  Paprika 1 Teaspoon
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced / pressed
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Vegetable oil 1 Teaspoon
  Red onion 1 Small, cut into thin wedges
  Yellow bell pepper 8 Ounce, seeded and cut into 1 inch squares (230 Gram / 1 Large Size Green / Red / Yellow Colored)

1. In a 3- to 4-quart (2.8- to 3.8-liter) pan, bring 2 cups (470 ml) water to a boil over high heat; stir in rice. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender to bite (about 20 minutes).
2. Meanwhile, to prepare sweet-sour sauce, in a medium-size bowl, stir together vinegar and cornstarch until blended. Then stir in 3/4 cup (180 ml) water, sugar, catsup, soy sauce, and Hot Chile Oil. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, gently mix tofu, paprika, garlic, and salt; set aside.
4. Heat oil in a wide nonstick frying pan or wok over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add tofu and stir-fry gently until heated through (3 to 4 minutes). Add water, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) at a time, if pan appears dry. Remove tofu from pan with a slotted spoon; keep warm.
5. Add onion, bell pepper, and 2 tablespoons (30 ml) water to pan. Stir-fry for 1 minute; add water, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) at a time, if pan appears dry. Stir sweet-sour sauce well; pour into pan. Cook, stirring, until sauce boils and thickens slightly (2 to 3 minutes). Stir in tomato, pineapple, and tofu; stir gently just until heated through (about 2 minutes).
