Tahu Goreng Medan

Nice and refreshing medan style salad :)

Recipe is from HERE with my own adjustment

What you need:

For the sauce:
(seasoning for the sauce depending on the sweetness of the pineapple)
Blend into paste: 5 cloves of peeled garlic, 5 cut large chilis with seed and 2 red bird eye's chilis with seed
1 honey pineapple, peel and discard the eyes, blend into smooth paste
100g gula melaka
125ml water
1tbsp dark sweet soy sauce
1.5tsp salt
2tsp sugar
1tbsp juice of lemon / lime

2 taukwa, cut according to preference, fry until golden brown
Lettuce, iceberg or baby romaine suits the most to me, wash and tear
Blanched beansprouts
Japanese cucumber, wash and cut
Peeled steamed potatoes, cut
Fried onion
Prawn crackers


For the sauce:
  1. Boil water and gula melaka until sugar melted, strain and pour back into the pot
  2. Add in just the juice of the pineapple and bring to boil
  3. Add in dark sweet soy sauce, salt and sugar, stir well
  4. Add in the remaining of the pineapple, followed by the blended paste, stir well until boiling
  5. Add in juice of lemon / lime, stir and off fire. Let cool completely and keep in the fridge
To serve, arrange lettuce, tofu, cucumber, potatoes and beansprout on a plate
Pour over sauce with a ladle, sprinkle with fried onion and add prawn crackers

I like this dish to be served chilled, with the potatoes and tofu warm
