Ingredient: Beancurd - Tahu, tofu

Beancurd, introduced by the Chinese, is now widely used in vegetable dishes and salads, providing inexpensive protein.

Beancurd is sold in cakes about 8 cm (3 inches) square. This beancurd is sometimes compressed to expel much of the moisture forming hard beancurd cakes. Do not confuse regular beancurd with soft or 'silken' beancurd sold in many stores abroad. Besides being used in the Indonesian cuisine, this is commonly used for Chinese soups and in Japanese cuisine.
