Hi everyone... I'm back again writing in this community. This time I want to share about the food I made yesterday. I made Crispy Tofu. It tastes good, guys...

.

By the way, are you guys familiar with tofu?

What Is Tofu?

Tofu -- or bean curd -- is made by pressing curdling soy milk into a solid block. Some tofu is firm while others are more soft and smooth. It can be sliced into different shapes and cooked in lots of ways.

Tofu Health Benefits

Tofu can be helpful for several health concerns:

Hot flashes. When researchers noticed that most Japanese women get fewer hot flashes than women in other cultures, they followed the pattern. Studies show that the estrogens in tofu (and other soy-based foods) cut down how often women in menopause get hot flashes and make them less severe.

Coronary heart disease. Plant estrogens may help make it less likely that you'll get heart trouble. That's because they improve how well your endothelium works. That's the tissue that lines your blood vessels and the inside of your heart.

Cholesterol levels. Research shows that if you eat 10 ounces of tofu a day, it can lower your levels of LDL "bad" cholesterol by 5%.

Osteoporosis. When estrogen levels go down after menopause, women can lose bone mass. Plant estrogens in tofu can make up for that drop-off. Tofu is also rich in calcium and vitamin D, which is good for bone health, too.

Prostate cancer. If you have this disease, eating tofu may keep your prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels low. This means the cancer grows more slowly or not at all.

Colorectal cancer. Tofu has fiber, and high-fiber diets keep your colon healthy and cancer risk low.

Memory and brain health. Some studies suggest soy foods like tofu might prevent memory loss and trouble thinking as you get older. But the research on this is mixed.

Weight loss. A study found a diet high in soy helped women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) to lose weight.

Better skin. Research suggests the isoflavones in soy might help skin look younger with fewer fine wrinkles.

Bone health. Several studies suggest the isoflavones in soy and soy protein make bones stronger by preventing bone loss. It may lower the risk of osteoporosis. ■ (Source: https://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/benefits-tofu)

Fry the tofu in a frying pan with cooking oil. Lift and drain. Leave the tofu for some time. Cut the tofu into two triangles. Take out the stuffing. Tofu that have been taken out of stuffing is given crispy bakwan flour and salt in the container. Cover the top of the container. Shake. Fry in a frying pan with cooking oil, lift and drain. Crispy Tofu placed on a plate. Add cayenne pepper.

I used pecel sauce.

■ Sambal pecel or sambel pecel is a food condiment made from peanuts, chili, brown sugar (or white sugar), garlic, lime leaves (or their fruit), tamarind fruit and salt. Sambal pecel (pecel sauce) is used for seasoning food that is equipped with vegetables and some traditional side dishes such as tempeh, tofu, peyek, Kering, and other side dishes.

Sambal pecel (pecel sauce) is a variation of peanut sauce. Each region has a different characteristic of sambal pecel (pecel sauce), some tend to be sweet, salty and spicy, some add turmeric to their composition, such as the typical sambal pecel (pecel sauce) of Blitar and Madiun. ■ ~WIKIPEDIA (https://id.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sambal_pecel)
