2 tube Egg Tofu – cut to about 2 cm thick
1 tsp Garlic – chopped
3 Slices Ginger
120g Prawns – shelled, season with some salt and pepper
100g Roast Pork – cut to bite size
3-4 pcs Mushrooms – soak in water till soft
Some Broccoli – cut to bite size and blanch in boiling water for 2 mins, dish up and dip in cold water and drain.
1 tbsp Oyster sauce
1/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp Light soy sauce
- Deep fry tofu until golden brown. Dish up and set aside.
- Heat some oil in wok, saute chopped garlic and sliced ginger until fragrant.
- Add in prawns, roast pork, mushrooms and stir well. Add seasoning, tofu, broccoli and cook for 2 mins.
- Thicken with corn flour water (1 1/2 tsp corn flour mixed with 2 1/2 tbsp water), mix well and serve hot.
Kitchen note: Can use chicken fillet or lean meat (season with some salt & pepper) to substitute roast pork. Add some carrot and snow peas in it to show more colours.
Egg Tofu is made from curdled soy milk, much in the same way cottage cheese is made from curdled cow’s milk. During this process, whole beaten eggs are added. The bean curd is then packaged in its tube where it coagulates and fills the interior space.
Egg Tofu has a milder, less beany flavour than regular tofu. Its texture is silky-smooth and slightly reminiscent of eggs. ~ Info from Vegetarian Cuisine
Its so sweet of Gulmohar from Collaborative Curry for sharing the Beautiful Award with me. Thank you very much!
This looks very good. I've never cooked with tofu and this would be a good recipe to start with.

Beautiful dish. Delicious combination of flavors.
woah anncoo. Never thought that this dish could look so delicious!
It's already very colourful now! I like! I think if I cook this for my parents in Malaysia, they will be so dead impressed. They prefer Chinese to western dishes. Thanks Ann!
Thank you all for commenting in this post 🙂
Chapot: Tofu is indeed tasteless but it is very healthy and rich in calcuim. Most Asians love tofu.
Roseiro: I used dried mushrooms but you can also use any kind of mushrooms.

Anncoo, this is one of my faves!! I've cooked this so many times since my days in the States. But, I normally deep-fry extra-firm tofu instead of using 日本豆腐. This is enlightening … Thanks for sharing!!Pei-Lin

Nice fresh ingredients in a satisfying dish. Beautifully photographed. I would certainly like to try a sample of this. Well done!
This is another healthy, delicious, and beautiful dish! I love broccoli!
What beautiful photos! I love both pork and tofu! Very nice dish.
The roast pork must have added a lot of flavor to the tofu dish.
Anncoo, There is an award waiting for you in our blog 🙂
Love this type of dish. Simple and nutritious.
I could honestly eat this everyday — and I love that saucy texture this dish has to it. Anncoo please cook for me 🙂
yummy! I can have that everyday!
This is another lovely dish that's healthy and full of flavor!
It's a beautiful dish that is very suitable for cooking in Chinese New Year as well.
This tofu with pork looks really good. Very healthy too.
Despite having never heard of egg tofu (is that the cracked egg looking item in the dish?) it looks delicious! I initially thought that egg was something like a 1000 year old egg or so.. 🙂
Love the looks of this dish. Happy New Year! You have a great blog here. Look forward to following you in 2010.
