>Sweet and Sour Sausages and Chilli Fried Tofu with Pak Choy
Oh oh, I have to post about this find from Carrefour. I was just browsing through the aisles of Carrefour, like I always do, and normally avoiding the pickled section, decided TO visit the pickled section and found this little beauty. Chilly Red Paste. It was sat amongst pickled veges, pickled olives, mustards, artichokes, etc. The beautiful striking redness of the chilli called out to me, inviting me to have a taste… standing there for a few minutes with the lady behind the counter looking at me weirdly, I decided to buy a spoonful of it. I hurried home, panfried the tofu and quickly dunked it in and stuffed it into my mouth. It wasn’t like the normal chilli paste that I have had, this one is pickled. It was sour, probably Middle Eastern style? They do like their vegetables pickled, wonder if it’s part of their cold mezze spread? It was nice, spicy, sour and may warrant a second visit. It’s fresh blended chilli with some form of vinegar I’m sure, not bad really.
The sweet and sour was simple, capsicum, onions, carrots and cucumber. In they went with 1/2cup apple cider vinegar and 2tsp of plum sauce. Simply delicious!
