About this recipe:
Tauhu goreng is essentially a Malay/Nonya dish that can be eaten as a side dish or as a meal in itself. Try the peanut sauce on top of your choice of vegetables too!
4 pieces tau kwa (fried beancurd cakes), cut into quarters
100g bean sprouts, blanched
1 cucumber peeled and shredded
3 tablespoons tamarind pulp, soaked in 250ml warm water and strained for tamarind water
1 tablespoon homemade or store-bought sambal belacan (shrimp chilli paste)
2 small cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons sugar
50 g roasted peanuts, crushed finely
1/2 teaspoon dark soya sauce
- In a large wok, deep fry the taukwa in hot oil until golden. Arrange the taukwa on a plate with the bean sprouts and shredded cucumber.
- In a small saucepan, combine all the sauce ingredients and simmer gently until a thick gravy forms, about 10 minutes.
- Top the tofu and vegetables with the gravy and serve immediately.
Make the sauce ahead and keep in the fridge until ready to use.
