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:)
