You may also use pan-fried extra firm tofu for this dish if you like. Before slicing your tofu into strips or cubes, make sure to press it well (or any shape of choice). You can double the sauce if you use a 500 g block of tofu. Mushrooms like shiitake and king oyster mushrooms will also work well in this dish.

  • What kind of black pepper should I use?

I used Malabar Coast black pepper, but any whole black peppercorns would do. While pre-ground pepper will work in this recipe, I don’t recommend it because many of the complex scents of black pepper begin to dissipate as soon as the peppercorns are crushed. That’s why pre-ground pepper doesn’t have the same aroma as freshly cracked pepper.

  • Why do chili peppers and black pepper both have “pepper” in their name?

Despite the fact that the two peppers are unrelated, they share a history. Black pepper arrived in Europe via the spice trade and quickly gained popularity as a flavoring for its ability to bring foods to life with its subtle burn. Black pepper became such a valuable commodity due to its scarcity that some say it was worth more than gold. It wasn’t long after explorers began bringing chili peppers back from the Americas for their decorative characteristics that people realized the colorful fruits could also be used to spice up food. What began as a gastronomic rip-off of black pepper has taken on a life of its own in kitchens around the world.
