Bamboo Shoots Curry + Deep Fried Tofu

>> October 4, 2010


- 1 can bamboo shoots, drained (if you can't get it fresh)
- 1/2 cup thick coconut milk.
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tbsp. yellow curry powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
- 1 medium size red onion, finely chopped.
- veggie meat (optional)

1. Heat oil a pot. Saute garlic and onion until garlic is golden brown and onion is soft.
2. Mix in the bamboo shoots and blend together for about 2 minutes.
3. Pour the coconut milk and water and bring it to a boil. Make sure to cook the coconut milk.
4. Once the coconut milk is cooked, sprinkle curry powder, salt and pepper.
5. Simmer for about 3 minutes.

The amount of curry powder you can put there depends on your taste. I don't like it too yellow and too spicy so I just put about 1 tbsp. just for the flavor.

You can find my technique in frying crispy tofu on this blog entry.

Tofu sauce/dip:
- 1/2 cup Datu Puti soy sauce
- 3 tbsp Datu Puti vinegar
- 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
- 1 red onion finely chopped
- red sugar
- red chili or sambal oelek

1. Mix the ingredients altogether. Add more vinegar if you wish. The amount of chili depends on how spicy you like. I am not a fan of spicy food so I just put about half teaspoon of sambal oelek (lekker), my favorite Indonesian chili paste :).

Bubble Blahs

I work and live at night time. I am a person deprived of natural light. I rarely cook in the morning as I'm almost always asleep, else busy with house chores. As much as I love natural light in my photography, I'm afraid I don't usually have that luxury, unless I sacrifice my sleep, or make an effort to stay up longer during the day to do a cooking + photo session. So I depend on my flash, and sometimes, available light from my fluorescent bulbs. Although, in my opinion, nothing beats the natural light, I am, so far, satisfied with my shots using my flash that I learned to love.

I always look forward to the weekends for some sunlight.
