Tofu Sambal

Tofu or also known as bean curd is an important source of protein especially for vegetarians, it has very low calorie and suitable for people on diet. It can be steamed, fried, stir fried, curry, sambal and many more style of cooking. Today I have made Tofu Sambal, usually this is what we prefer to eat on vegetarian day, it tastes so good if served along with sambar, sothy or any non-spicy dish. Let us look at how I made this dish.


4pcs firm tofu (cut into triangle)
2 onion sliced
20pcs dry red chili
5 garlic cloves
1 tbsp chili sauce
1 tbsp oyster mushroom sauce
1 tsp soft brown sugar
1 cup water
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Shallow fry tofu and keep aside, do not over fry just until golden color. Blend fine dry chili, 1 onion and garlic with a cup of water.

In a pan, pour oil saute balance onion and blended chili mixture, boil until the chili mixture is perfectly cook and raw smell is gone. Now add chili sauce, mushroom sauce, brown sugar and salt until the gravy thickens, Once thicken add fried tofu and let simmer for 10 minutes so that the tofu will immerse in the gravy.

Now our Tofu Sambal is ready to be served. Do try and let me know how it tastes.
