Sambal Fried Beancurd with Sugar Snap Peas
Sambal fried beancurd (tau kwa) is a wonderful dish to go with steamed rice. Once in a while, I like to go meatless, and this recipe is excellent for that because the beancurd provides all the protein you need in place of meat. The spiciness of the sambal paste is a nice contrast to the sweet tasting peas. I love this combination of ingredients.
I used my home made sambal belachan (pictured above) as a base for this dish. It is such a handy condiment to keep in the fridge – not only can it be used as a condiment, it is great for stir-fries just like this dish.
