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.

    • 4 pieces of  fried beancurd/tofu
    • 100 gm pork fillet, diced

    • 1/4 tsp of dark soya sauce, sugar and cornflour (for pork only)
    • Dash of pepper
     Method

    2. Saute the chopped garlic with some oil in a wok, add in the pork fillet, stir fry, add in 1/2 cup water.
    3. Once cooked, add in the beancurd, followed by the prawns and capsicum.
    4. Test for taste, add in the cornflour mixture and beaten egg.  Stir to mix, test for taste, turn off heat.

  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!
