Drain tofu for 5-10mins on a plate.
Cut tofu into large or small pieces (depending on preference).
In a small saucepan heat dashi, mirin and soy sauce. Once heated through on a medium heat, set aside.
In a large frying pan add oil (deep pr shallow frying as per preference).
Once oil is boiling dredge tofu in corn flour and fry evenly so that all sides are golden brown.
