Salted Egg steamed Tofu



Tofu or soy bean curd is nutritious, full of protein, low in carbohydrates with no oil or sodium.  Rather bland in taste on its own but pairs well with many ingredients.  This is a very easy dish to prepare  with minced meat and Shitake mushrooms topped with salted egg yolk.  The egg yolk adds a golden hue to the colour of this dish.   A fuss-free dish which goes down very well with a bowl of hot, fluffy, white rice.

  1. Hi Cheah, I certainly will cook this dish. Just bought some salted eggs and I can get the traditionally prepared tofu at the market near my MIL's place. Looks yummy and hassle-free.

    Hi Cheah, Salted egg is my favourite. I used it to cook any dish that comes to my mind. I am contended just having plain porridge and a salted egg.
