Tofu Puff in Hot Sour Sauce (Tahu Gejrot)

This snack is easy to find anywhere in Indonesia, from roadside stalls to foodcourts
But in Singapore, I gotta make it myself to be able to enjoy this traditional snack I haven't had in ages :)

I was delighted to see the recipe in Dessy's site and immediately gave it a go
Hhhmmm so refreshing, especially when the sauce is kept chilled in the fridge, poured on the still hot tofu :)

What you need:

10pcs of tofu puff, fried til crisp and cut

For the sauce:
half block of palm sugar
2 tbsp
2 tbsp dark sweet soya sauce (kecap manis)
1 tsp salt
350ml water

For the chilli topping: (mix together)
4 shallots, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 bird's eye chillis, chopped
  1. Bring to boil all ingredients for the sauce, strain
  2. Pour over the hot tofu and eat with the chilli topping

Simple and satisfying, I love! :)
