Ann, which brand of beancurd did you use? Do I use those ideal for frying or deep frying or pressed tofu? Thanks!
Ai Li, use pressed tofu is better, not too watery.
Thank you, Ann!
Ann, I cooked these tofu today. They are very very very very very good…………!!! My husband is full of praises for them! I told him its Ann's creation and he said : "shes good". Needless to say….of course!
hahaa… thank you very much for all your compliment! 🙂
Maybe i didn't use another spoon or knife to push into the wok, that's y…
First of all, the tofu mustn't too wet. Secondly, scoop the tofu with one spoon and use another spoon or knife to push the tofu into the wok.
Sorry that I didn't write clearly ^_^ @-@ ugly never mind 🙁 can try second time, right?
Anncoo, how u shape till so nice, i tried it, when frying, it turn out so ugly… so sad… 🙁
I'm so happy that your family and friends like this dish.
Please don't be shy to drop your comment whether you like it or not ~ OK?
Last night I reply to you, how’s that it didn’t appear in your blog.
They are supercilious and my DH said next time put prawn & fish paste, chopped onion and a little red or green chiili to it.
My next block neighbour commented they were very delicious and her daughter eat 4 for dinner.
Thank you once again
I am so happy that you're going to try my recipe.
Just a little reminder, If you don't like too salty, just lower the salt and test it first before adding more salt.
Let me know the result, ok?
I'm going to make this recipe tonight for our dinner and share them with my friend living at the next block.
Thank you for your great recipe
I like this! I am sure this taste very good.
Most Chinese like to cook tofu at home no doubt it is quite tasteless but can cook in many ways.
I like to eat Tofu occasionally but since I live in provincial Spain I avoid Tofu because the quality of Tofu here is…awful.
I agree with Christine. Deep fried Tofu can be absolutely delicious.
Yes Peachkins, of course you can add anything you like…haha…
I know this is yummy Anncoo!! My mom cooks something like this only it has bean sprouts..
Its may look crunchy but actually it is not because this is tofu, is soft inside.
Thanks for visiting, pls come often.
These look beautiful. I bet they are really nice and crunchy
Cooking-Gallery: I agree, so sometime I steam the tofu with fish paste or make cold tofu.
nyonya pendak melaka: Yes I remember there was once I made 10 blocks of tofu for the recipe.
Tofu and prawns sound to be a very good combination – especially deep fried…! Unhealthy but yummy…;-)
What a great dish. Can have it with rice or even just as snacks. I love this!
burpandslurp: Thank you for your compliment.
Tracie: Yeah, Our kids at home liked this. Will share my other tofu recipes soon.
