Hey beancurd lovers, here’s another delicious tofu dish produced by using the very basic of ingredients. Sometime simplicity is the best. The original recipe involve the use of a sizzling platter. Because I have none, the only difference is that mine won’t be sizzling hot!
Use a scissors to cut the side of the egg beancurd packaging carefully. Slice beancurd to about 1cm-1.5cm thickness.
Fry beancurd in hot oil over high heat until golden brown.
Place the fried beancurd on a paper towel to drain the oil. Then arrange fried egg beancurd on a platter.
This is the super cute ‘mini’ dried anchovies which I bought from night market. Rinse and make sure they’re dry before deep frying them until golden brown.
Here are some of the ingredients used.
Leave a tablespoon oil in the wok and add chopped garlic. Once aromatic, add minced pork and mushroom and stir-fry until it changes color. Next, add prawns and stir-fry for another minute. Add water and seasoning and bring to a boil. Spread the cooked ingredients over the beancurd pieces. Add pre-fried anchovies, chopped chilies and spring onions. Best eaten with rice.
I love the combination of crunchy anchovy and the beancurd softness with aromatic Shaoxing wine. Try it ya.
