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


Marinade:

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.


Wrap the tofu in the pandan leaves according to the video below. Then fry at 170°C for about 3 minutes or until the pandan leaves change colour.


Serve with a sweet and sour cucumber relish.
