Tauco Udang Medan ( Prawn stir fry with fermented soybean)



Tauco (ChinesepinyindòujiàngPe̍h-ōe-jī: tāu-chiùⁿ), is a paste made from preserved fermented yellow soybeans in Chinese Indonesian cuisine. The name comes from the pronunciation in the Hokkiendialect and it is originated from China. The sauce is also commonly used in other Indonesian cuisinestraditions, such as Sundanese cuisine and Javanese cuisine.
The sauce is often used as condiment and flavouring for stir fried dishes such as tahu tauco (tofu in tauco sauce), kakap tahu tausi (red snapper with tofu in soybean sauce), or in soup such as swikee oh (frog legs in tauco soup) and pie oh (softshell turtle in tauco soup). Today the major production center of tauco in Indonesia is in CianjurWest Java. Source: ( wikipedia )
