Marinated tofu, fried in pandan leaves

Here is a particularly original starter. The tofu is first marinated and then wrapped in pandan leaves which will share their flavours during cooking.

Serves 2.

150 g tofu, cut into 6 pieces of equal size


1 garlic clove

1 coriander root

1 teaspoon white peppercorns

1 teaspoon curry powder

1 teaspoon sesame oil

2 tablespoons coconut cream

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon mushroom sauce

6 fresh pandan leaves

vegetable oil, for frying

Pound garlic, coriander and peppercorns until smooth. Add curry powder, sesame oil, coconut cream, soy sauce and mushroom sauce. Stir in the tofu and marinate for at least 20 minutes.
