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.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
