Wrap the tofu in a clean tea towel.
Place a chopping board or heavy book on top and leave for 30 minutes to press out the liquid.
Cut the tofu into 2.5-5cm (1 -2 in) cubes and sprinkle them with tamari.
Coat with kuzu, arrowroot or cornflour, if using.
Heat 2 tablespoons of the sesame oil in a wok or frying pan and fry the tofu until crisp; set aside (preferably keep warm in a low oven).
Heat the remaining oil in the wok and stir-fry the green pepper, celery, carrot and mange tout for 5 minutes, until the vegetables are tender but still firm.
Stir in the bamboo shoots, water chestnuts and pineapple and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Remove the vegetables and keep warm.
To make the sauce, dissolve the cornflour or arrowroot in the water.
Combine the remaining sauce ingredients in a separate bowl and add to the wok.
When the sauce starts to boil, add the cornflour or arrowroot mixture and stir for 2 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.
Add the fried tofu and vegetables, mix well and serve at once.
