Heat a saucepan and add the oil, then add the carrot and hijiki and stir fry over medium high heat. After a couple of minutes add the fried tofu and continue to cook for another couple of minutes.
Mix in the dashi and sugar, cooking over medium heat for 5 minutes.
Add the soy sauce and reduce heat to medium low. Cover with a drop lid (we used a makeshift one of parchment paper here) and simmer until the liquid reduces to about a third. Can be served hot or chilled.
