Tahu Goreng(Fried Beancurd with Peanut Sauce)

Todays menu for mumsdishes is simplest and yet nourishing, actually bought tahu or tofu which supposed to make tahu goreng yesterday, (a little story to share..hehe)due to unforseen circumstances,the AXS machine breakdown and had to find at other location with my loads of marketing stuff and was too exhausted from running errand and marketing and had guest coming @ 2pm ,so for my poor guest managed to get them almost instant food, satay goreng with empit rice.
So today my menu will be tahu goreng:-

Tahu (or tofu, hard bean curd)

cucumber - slices

bean sprouts - blanched

hae ko (Wet shrimp paste) )

ground peanuts   )

brown sugar   ) for sauce

asam juice   )

freshly ground chili paste )

ginger  )

green chillies )  ground


Put ingredients for sauce together in a large bowl and mix throughly.

Brown tahu in a pan with oil, cut into cubes.  Put on a plate together with 

slices of cucumber and some bean sprouts.

Pour sacue over and top with ginger/green chili sauce.

Serve hot. 


4 pieces tau kwa (fried beancurd cakes), cut into quarters
100g bean sprouts, blanched
1 cucumber peeled and shredded
Sauce ingredients:
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
125ml water
50 g roasted peanuts, crushed finely
1/2 teaspoon dark soya sauce

Preparation method

1. 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.
2. In a small saucepan, combine all the sauce ingredients and simmer gently until a thick gravy forms, about 10 minutes.
3. Top the tofu and vegetables with the gravy and serve immediately.

Make ahead
Make the sauce ahead and keep in the fridge until ready to use.
 @Mumsdishes prefer to do it from scratch for the sauce:
Kuah Kacang (Peanut sauce)

300 gm peanuts kacang (toasted &  pound coarsely)
15 chilli padi (add more if prefer more spicy)
6 garlic
½ tablespoon vinegar
2 tablespoon fine sugar
2 tablespoon brown sugar or gula melaka

everything mixed well and serve with cucumber,bean sprout and fried tofu
