Two Women and A Half Man …a cooking journey with mum and grandma in beautiful Mauritius…

Grandma Tofu

…that night I saw grandma soaking the soy beans. I knew she would be making tofu the following morning. As a matter of fact, I’m awaken by a loud and roaring sound. It’s 5 am and the grinding machine was in full swing turning the soaked soy beans into soy milk. This was my earliest memory of my grandma making tofu. I must have been 5 years old.

Tofu is basically pressed curd made from soy beans. Tofu is a versatile ingredient used in Asian cuisine in all around the world. My favorite use of tofu would be in a pork stew with fermented rice.

My grandma always make hers from scratch, and I wouldn’t miss the chance to learn and document her process.
