Grilled tofu (bean curd) is a dish commonly found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. It's a snack that is both appetizing and brightly flavorful.
When preparing the dish, cakes of hard tofu are grilled until golden brown. The bean curds are then cut diagonally in half and arranged on a plate garnished with bean sprouts, cucumber and scallion. A thick sauce is prepared with shallots, garlic, chili peppers and shrimp paste. The tofu is usually grilled for about 3 minutes on each side.
