Better known as Tofu Satay, Sate Tahu is the Indonesian version of the well-known Thai vegetarian appetizer. The satay style of cooking is actually Indonesian in origin, specifically Java, but has become popular across Southeast Asia. I modified the following recipe according to what I had available (no daun salam or kaffir lime leaves, but I did have lemongrass) and a whim (added a few green cardomom pods, because I love 'em).
Frying spice paste smells soooooo good!
The marinade gets boiled way down before adding to tofu to the grill. Mix the leftover marinade with a tablespoon of peanut butter and a tsp of soy sauce for the sate sauce.
