Tofu and Mushroom on skewer
Take the tofu and pat dry it on the kitchen towel or absorbent paper.
Cut the tofu lengthwise and cut the mushrooms into halves.
Take satay sauce in a mixing bowl.
Add tofu into it.
Add chopped mushroom into it .
Now coat the tofu and mushroom well with the satay sauce very gently. Let it marinade for 30 minutes.
Arrange the marinated tofu and mushrooms alternatively on the wooden skewers. (I have soaked the wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes so they become wet and do not burn while grilling on barbeque or oven). Remove the extra sauce left after arranging the tofu and mushroom on a skewer in a bowl for serving.
Arrange the skewers on the baking tray lined with aluminium foil or butter paper and grill them in the preheated oven at 200 C for 10-15 minutes or keep them on the open barbeque and grill them for around 15 minutes or till done.
The grilled satay tofu and mushroom in ready. Remove in a plate.
Arrange the satay tofu and mushroom skewer on a serving plate. Put the leftover satay sauce over it and serve with salad and onion.
