This recipe is a result of available ingredients in the fridge. I love pork belly, and quite enjoy the taste of fermented to tofu, which got me thinking, if pork belly works with salted fish, why not with fermented tofu? So I did just that, an experimental recipe of fried pork belly with fermented tofu.

Luckily, this turned out quite a success, the combination of succulent, savory pork belly and the salty yet slightly pungent fermented tofu worked well. The spiciness added by ginger and dried chili gave it a bit more character too, if you are thinking of something slightly out of the ordinary, do give this a try. 🙂

Remember to not put too much oil while cooking the garlic & ginger, the pork belly naturally will produce more fat while cooking, you don’t want the dish to end up too oily. For those who love it even more spicy, some chili padi will be lovely too!

Happy cooking!
