Print-BRAISED HOMEMADE EGG TOFU (EGG BEAN CURD)

INGREDIENTS

Main :

  • Egg Tofu – sliced into bite size.

Side :

  • Finely chopped Onion, Garlic, Ginger and Chilis. Sliced Scallion and Red carrot. Minced pork and some Roast pork (optional and could be any Seafood). Some Cornstarch mixture as thickening agent.

Seasoning :

  • Salt, Sugar, White pepper, Sesame oil, Oyster Sauce and Dark soy sauce. All to taste. ** Note : Just dash of everything, if U prefer a stronger intensity of an ingredient flavor, simply add a little extra of that ingredient/spice (no rocket scientific measurement here). Always taste your Seasoning !!!
METHOD

Start by Deep-frying the Tofu in very hi-heat. Watch out, bound to have some oil-splashes. Till Golden-brown, abt 5-mins. Do not over-crowd, do in batches if need to. Set aside to drain excess oil.

In medium-heat, saute all the chopped Ingredients till aromatic. Then add in the Meat and sliced Carrots. Stir to keep from burning, saute till aromatic. Add water, this is ur gravy (if U prefer more gravy, add more). Bring to boil and let it simmer a little. Add in the Tofu and Corn-starch mixture, mix thoroughly but gently (unless U want broken-up Tofu..LoL). Let it simmer for a little. Add the sliced Scallion and all the Seasoning Ingredients. Viola..! Your pot of delicious homemade “Braised Egg Tofu” is done !!! Serve hot with rice.
