CUT tofu into 8 equal cubes by first cutting the block into 2 sheets, then cutting both sheets in half and then in quarters.

MIX soup mix and 1/4 cup warm water in medium bowl. Add tofu; mix well. Cover; marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

HEAT oil in large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sesame seeds; cook, stirring constantly, for about 1 minute or until seeds are fragrant. Transfer tofu from marinade to skillet along with seasoning sauce. Pan-fry for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Turn; pan-fry other side for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with Yogurt Mint Sauce.
