Tahu Penyet

If I freely translated this dish name’s into English, then it would be “Smashed Tofu” :p Yeah I have to admit I’m no good in translating food title. But if I try to describe it then it would be fried tofu crushed with sambal….hmm and nothing beats this with steamed white rice…and you have to use your hand when eating this 😉
