Light and easy

Though my sister got a 'O' level pass for her cookery but I hardly see her cook even when she got married off.

Come to think about it, both my sisters studied cookery but they don't seems to be interested in being in the kitchen. We hardly get to see home cooked food at my sister's place, it is always take aways.

When we do have home cooked meals, it is always prepared by my brother in law. My conclusion is that I think my brother in law is pretty a good cook.

His dishes are very tasty and it is always very healthy too (less salt, less oil and always have healing properties). There are a few dishes that I really like.

One of them was Steam Tofu with Fish paste. His was really tasty, I figured out that because his fish meat was from a famous stall in Chinatown wherelse mine is just from the Yong Tau Fu stall (wrong choice).

Anyway, mine ain't too bad either but if possible, I will buy my fish paste from Chinatown next time.


What you need:

1/2 kg fish paste
1 pc Tung Yi
steam tofu
2 eggs,
1 egg shell full water,
seasame oil
light sauce


Beat egg, add water and season with sesame oil, light sauce and pepper

Mashed tofu

Add in fish paste (chunky pieces) to tofu. Mixed well.

Add beaten eggs to tofu and mixed well again.

Steam for around 10 mins.

Garnish with spring onions and chillies.
