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

    Seasoning for pork and prawns
    • 1/2 tsp each of seasalt, light soya sauce
    • 1/4 tsp of dark soya sauce, sugar and cornflour (for pork only)
    • Dash of pepper
     Method
    1. Season the  pork fillet and prawns with the above seasoning for about half an hour.
    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!

      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:)

White Bihoon/Rice vermicelli ~ 白米粉

I was introduced to White Bihoon on my recent trip to Singapore and must admit that I have never heard of this before.  Back here, we have Hokkien fried bihoon which is brownish in colour or Cantonese braised bihoon which is bihoon deep fried and coated with an eggy sauce of meat, seafood and vegetables.  I was curious and I had my first taste of this popular White Bihoon at Jewel, Changi airport.  It's white, because no light or dark soya sauce was added to the bihoon, hence it's white.  It does tastes good with a light squeeze of calamansi. So, today I'm trying to replicate this dish and here's my version of White Bihoon.  Enjoy!
