Braised Beancurd ~ Tofu


Beancurd on its own is rather bland in taste but with 'add ons', it can be transformed into a delicious dish.  I cook this quite often and it does go well with a bowl of fluffy white rice.

  10. Cheah,
    This is a delish dish! Simple yet health and with lots of nutrient.
    May i know do you use the plain white tofu and pan fried the tofu first or you can buy ready fried tofu?
    Thanks Cheah:)

    1. I used the ready fried tofu. Pan frying white tofu is a tediuos task because the oil will splatter all over and it's a certain 'no, 'no' for me!

      Oh! It's so good your can buy fried tofu over there. We don't have that here. I guess I have to do it myself:)
      Thanks Cheah.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
