Tahu Geprek Sambal Kencur (Smashed Tofu with Kencur Sambal)

{{totalReview}}
Tahu Geprek Sambal Kencur comes with tofu, and a sprinkling of special spicy sambal. Geprek means “smashed” in Indonesian and this dish received its name from the act of “smashing” the tofu a little before dousing it with spicy kencur sambal. To make this dish vegan, just omit the chicken stock. A winner for everyone!
