These ingredients, to my way of thinking, are about right for two people; but if you are not sure yet how much you like bean curd, they could be enough for four.


  • 4 pieces of bean curd
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 tbs


Cut each piece of bean curd in half. Crush the garlic, put it in the tamarind water, and season with salt. Dip the bean curd pieces into this water before deep-frying them until golden brown.

You can eat Tahu Goreng as a snack, or as a first course with Sambal Kecap or as just another side dish in a rijsttafel. Alternative
