4 cakes towfo- each cut in two and then sliced into 1 cm thick pieces
INGREDIENTS to be finely ground or pounded:
4 fresh chilies and 2 dried chilies, some seeded, 1 stalk serai finely sliced, 1/2 tsp belachan,(optional), 6 small onions
1 cup coconut milk
8 medium prawns , whole or shelled chopped ( optional, for economy)
4 dsp vegetable oil

Heat oil in frying pan. Fry pounded ingredients till cokked and fragrant, add prawns, stir well and when cooked, add the coconut milk1/2 and salt. When boiling, add the tofu, stirring gently and adding the rest of the coconut milk. Simmer till gravy thickens a little oil appears.

To economise, you can leave out the fresh prawns. If u like the flavour of dried prawns, use a dsp of them, washing thoroughly and soaking them in hot water before pounding them to break them up a little.
