How to Make Tahu Goreng With Homemade Spicy Soy-Vinegar Dip
Tahu goreng, or fried tofu, is a common dish in Indonesia. It can be served with different sauces or other ingredients. I had a chance to eat authentic tahu goreng with sambal kecap, an Indonesian dipping sauce, when I explored the many beautiful places in Bali, Indonesia. Since I miss this dish, I tried to cook my own version of it—but instead of sambal kecap I served it with my homemade spicy soy-vinegar dip. I enjoy eating this dish with plain rice.
