Steamed Seasoned Tofu+Shrimp+Mushroom (Botok Tahu)

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Don't you just love the name of this meal? It is steamed, it's meat free (except for the little tiny shrimp, which you may omit)..it has to be healthy! And it's my husband's fave..it reminds him of a quiet remote place somewhere back in Indonesia. The fact, it is easy to prepare and so tasty..(I especially love the fragrant that came from the banana leaves). No need to believe me, just prove it yourself.

Steamed Seasoned Tofu+Shrimp+Mushroom

Ingredients:
4 blocks of medium firm tofu, mashed
150g small shrimp (no skin)
1 can of straw mushroom, discard the water
1 can of coconut milk
1 Tbsp of chicken broth powder
1 tsp of ground white pepper
2 egg
6 cloves of shallot, thinly sliced
8 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
8 chili paddy, sliced (adjust the quantity to your preference)
2 stalks of lemon grass, cut into 4cm in length
4cm galangal, sliced
bunch of Indonesian bay leaves
bunch of lemon basil leaves
salt and sugar
banana leaves and toothpicks for wrapping

Directions:
In a big bowl mix well all of the ingredients, except bay leaves and lemon grass. Take a piece of banana leaves then place one bay leaf and a cut of lemongrass and top them up with the mixed ingredients. Wrap it and seal it with toothpick as shown on the above picture. Steam them for 45minutes. Serve warm with warm steamed rice.
