👨🏼 🍳 Gado-Gado: Steps to take for preparation

• Step 1:

Blanch all vegetables: briefly immerse them in boiling water, so that they don’t get fully cooked: let them boil for a few moments, bring them out with a foamer and pass them right away by cold water.

• Step 2:

Prepare the sauce by frying the peanuts in a hot pan with a tablespoon of oil. Stir frequently for a few minutes, until slightly brown.

• Step 3:

Mix peanuts, garlic and chilli with a mortar for a smooth paste.

• Step 4:

In a saucepan, combine the processed mixture with tamarind extract, lemon juice and water (about 50 ml). Continue simmering to achieve the desired consistency, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

• Step 5:

Cut the tofu into 2 cm cubes. Fry the tofu in a frying pan with hot oil to lightly brown on all sides.

• Step 6:

Cut the tempeh and fry for a few minutes.

• Step 7:

Place all ingredients in a dish and serve with the peanut sauce on top.

👉 As we always tell you, there are many variations of this same dish that you can make: just think about all the different types of vegetables you could use. Be creative and try to make your own version of Gado-Gado! 👌
