Usually sambal dishes have dried shrimp so if you usually get the bottled sambal from your supermarkets, do check the ingredients first. Or else, this is a simple recipe that you can try. When I make it I use frozen thawed tofu and instead of sugar and soy I use Kejap manis (but you can't get it everywhere so I have listed the sub)
- 150 g tofu (fried)
- 1/2 onion (optional)
- 4 garlic cloves
- 4-5 shallots
- 1 ripe tomato
- blended chili (depending how hot you want it to be)
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce (or to taste)
- sugar (to taste)
If using onion, cut into rings.
Blend garlic & shallots (together). Heat some oil in the pan/wok, add onion and the blended items.
Stir fry for about 2-3 minutes. Add the blended chilli Give it a stir, blending all ingredients.
Wait for a couple of minutes before adding the mashed tomato into the pan. Give a good mix & let the chilli and tomato cook.
Add soy sauce & sugar, again mix well. Finally put in tofu. Stir fry till tofu is coated with all ingredients. If you rather have the tofu soft, I suggest you put the lid on for 1-2 minutes. Ready to serve with white rice or fried rice.
