Fried tofu cubes

If you decide to fry your own tofu, start by cutting a block of firm/extra-firm tofu into 16 pieces.

Marinate tofu cubes with minced garlic, salt, and water for about 15 minutes.

Heat about two tablespoons of oil in a non-stick frying pan or a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet over medium heat.

Pat dry tofu cubes, then fry until all the tofu cubes are golden brown. Set aside.

Transfer the finished dish to a serving plater and garnish with scallions.

Orak Arik Buncis & Wortel – Green Bean, Carrot, and Egg Stir Fry Recipe

Orak arik buncis dan wortel – Indonesian green bean, carrot, and egg stir fry

Orak arik is an Indonesian stir fry dish with eggs and vegetables. There are so many varieties of orak arik since this is a very versatile dish, but I will teach you how to prepare this dish with green beans and carrots.

Green beans and carrots are my favorite combination when cooking orak arik. You can use other vegetables as long as the total weight is 500 grams (slightly more than 1 pound).

If you want a more filling dish, you can use half vegetables and half protein. I highly recommend using fried tofu cubes or fish cakes/fish balls for the protein. An example of this is my orak arik tahu jamur recipe using mushrooms and fried tofu cubes.

Ingredients for orak arik buncis dan wortel (Indonesian green bean, carrot, and egg stir fry): green beans, carrots, eggs, shallot, garlic, chilies, scallions, soy sauce, fish sauce, sugar, salt, and pepper.

Ingredients for Indonesian green bean, carrot, and egg stir fry

  • green beans
  • carrots
  • eggs
  • shallot
  • garlic
  • scallions
  • chilies
  • salt, pepper, and sugar
  • soy sauce
  • fish sauce

All of the above ingredients are must-haves, but there are some workable substitutes if you cannot find everything.

The best substitute for green beans is snake beans/Chinese long beans/yardlong beans.

Instead of shallots, you can also use yellow, white, or red onion.

I am using jalapenos since they are almost always available in the grocery stores. You can use Fresno chilies, serrano chilies, or even Thai bird-eye chilies if you love the extra heat. When you want to make this dish as kid-friendly as possible, you can even use bell pepper (red, orange, yellow, or green).

The main seasonings in this dish are soy sauce and fish sauce, so it is not recommended to skip these. The only good alternatives I can recommend are tamari for soy sauce and oyster sauce for fish sauce.

(1) Sauté garlic and shallot. (2) Add carrots and green beans. (3) Set the vegetables to one side of the pan, pour the beaten eggs on the other side, and make scrambled egg. (4) Season with sugar, pepper, soy sauce, and fish sauce. And finally add chilies and scallions.
