I love to cook and enjoy most of the soya food products such as soft/firm beancurd, tofu puffs and even Tempeh. This dish is another tasty tofu dish with simple ingredients and seasoning. This is the second time I cooked this dish and as I like it very much, thought it would be good to keep the recipe here.
The fried tofu has the natural flavor of soya and blends well with the savoury/spicy seasoning sauce.
A homey dish that is quick to prepare for your family.
