Fried Tofu and Plum Sauce ( Tuw Hu Tod )


A very simple starter, to illustrate how plum sauce is used. This dish is simply cubes of deep fried tofu, with plum sauce as a dipping sauce and coriander garnish.

200 gms Tofu
Oil for Deep Frying
Plum Sauce
Coriander Leaves for Garnish

1. Take the tofu and pat it dry on kitchen paper, this is to avoid the hot oil spattering. Cut into large cubes, 2cms on each side.
2. Heat the oil medium to 180 degrees celsius.
3. Fry the tofu cubes until brown, remove and drain on kitchen paper.
4. It really is that simple, you serve with plum sauce and garnish with some chopped coriander leaves to add a little colour. Serve with beer as a snack.

yum...another nice condiment to go with this is sweet chilli sauce...preferably something with a bit of bite to it.

A variation to this is after frying the tofu, you split it in half and fill it with julienned cucumber and beansprouts. Also you could try rubbing the tofu with salt/garlic salt before deep frying.

Thanks for jogging my memory on a classic!
