  3. When the rice has fully cooled, add it to the bowl with the tofu and mix well.
  4. Put the skillet over medium high heat and when it is hot, add the oil.
  5. Add the rice and tofu mixture; reduce heat to low and press down the rice mixture with a spatula. Cover and cook 10 minutes. Press down again to help form a crust. Flip portions of the rice so that you get chunks of crispy rice. Cook until crispy, up to 20 minutes.
