Resep Sup Siomay Tahu Isi Adonan Ikan

Yong tau fu is called tahu isi ikan or fish paste stuffed  tofu in Indonesia.The other tofu and veggies stuffed with fish paste is called siomay. Siomay is usually served with peanut sauce and kecap manis or  sweet soy sauce. In  Palembang, one of the largest city in Indonesia, we used to called a fish meat ball soup as tekwan. Tekwan is fish ball soup in a clear broth with  jullienned earwood mushrooms. I like to add some heavy cream or thick coconut cream to the fish paste to make it not too chewy when cooked. The coconut cream made the filling easily chewed but the texture is still slightly crunchy. Instead serving with hot and  sour dip, i like to serve the yong tofu with sambal tauco or spicy fermented bean sauce.

Recipe Tofu Omelette (Tahu Telur) with Peanut Sauce, Meat Floss and Garlic Chieves

Omelette or omelet is a made of beaten eggs that cooked in a frying pan, sometimes folded around a filling such as cheese, vegetables, meat (often ham), or some combination of the above. To obtain a fluffy texture, whole eggs or sometimes egg whites only are beaten with a small amount of milk or cream, or even water, the idea being to have “bubbles” of water vapor trapped within the rapidly cooked egg. Some home cooks add baking powder to produce a fluffier omelette.

Tofu Omelette Recipe (Tahu Telur) with Peanut Sauce, Meat Floss and Garlic Chieves

Tofu omelette or Tahu Telur in Bahasa Indonesia ia common street food originally from East Java. Authentic version of tahu telur is made of tofu omelette that served with blanched bean sprout, chopped garlic chives, sweet soy sauce and ground toasted peanut. Since i couldn’t found any bean sprout in supermarket the the before, i improvised with my new kitchen ingredient: Sichimi Togarashi (Nanami Togarashi). Shichimi tōgarashi (Japanese: 七味唐辛子, “seven flavor chili pepper”), also known as nana-iro tōgarashi (七色唐辛子?), and simply shichimi, is a common Japanese spice mixture containing seven ingredients. A typical blend may contain coarsely ground red chili pepper (the main ingredient), ground sansho (Sichuan pepper), roasted orange peel, black sesame seed, white sesame seed, hemp seed, ground ginger,nori or aonori.
