  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • The rest of the ingredients
  • 50 gram shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 scallions, separate whites and greens, thinly sliced
  • 3 red fresno chilies (or 1 red bell pepper), seeded and diced
  • 250 gram (8 oz) fresh mushroom (any variety), cut into bite sizes
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sweet soy sauce (Indonesian: kecap manis)

  1. Marinate tofu: Marinate tofu cubes with garlic, salt, and water in a mixing bowl for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Fry tofu: Heat 2 tablespoon oil in a non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Fry tofu cubes until golden brown, set aside.
  3. Beat eggs: In a mixing bowl, lightly beat together eggs with salt and ground white pepper. Set aside.
  4. Fry aromatics: Add 2 tablespoon oil to the frying pan. Stir fry shallot, onion, garlic, the white part of scallions, and Fresno chilies/bell pepper until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  5. Fry mushroom: Add mushroom, stir to mix, and cook until the mushroom wilt.
  6. Make egg scramble: Push everything to one side of the pan. Pour beaten eggs to the clean side of the pan. When the eggs start to set, stir with a spatula to make scrambled eggs.
  7. Add tofu and seasoning: Return fried tofu cubes to the pan. Season with oyster sauce, sweet soy sauce, fish sauce, and ground white pepper. Mix well. Adjust seasoning as needed.
  8. Serve: Turn off heat. Transfer to a serving plate, and garnish with the green part of scallions.
