Tofu in Coconut Milk

This tofu is so simple & delicious which provides a healthy dose of good protein. The soft, delicate taste of tofu, soaked in soothing, delicious gravy gives a smooth taste with wholesome values. I am a staunch believer of simplicity in terms of ingredients, the method of cooking & presentation - so this recipe suits me to a tee!

  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
  • 1 tbsp dried prawns, soaked & pounded
  • 4 tofu, cut into 6 equal-sized cubes & washed
  • 3 cups coconut milk
  • 1 tsp salt

  1. Pour the coconut milk into a small pot. Cook on very low fire & keep stirring.
  2. When the milk begins to boil, put in the onions, garlic & dried prawns.
  3. Put the tofu gently into the simmering coconut milk.
  4. Flavour with salt.
  5. Totally soothing with white rice but just as lovely on its own.
