Experiment no 2

Since my last post on bean curd, I was really busy with kids. I took up Shirley and Jo's offer of providing me with bean curd recipes as I really have no clue where to start with after my last attempt locating library books.

Anyway, this one came on time for me to test it out today since it is generally a no meat day for us on Friday.

My brain cells haven't been working really well these past few days. After glancing at the recipe and taking note of all the ingredients I needed to get. I dashed to the supermarket to load up before picking up my son.

I still was clueless how this recipe will turned out till I started cooking it. Geesh, this dish is so much similar of how my mom will prepare beansprouts! except that this one include taukwa to it. So I quickly modified it a little.

For presentation, I separate the bean curd with beansprout. It should be either beansprout laying on a bed of bean curd or mixed the beansprout and bean curd together.


Thanks Shirley for taking the time out to forward me this recipe. Tomorrow I will attempt another two that Jo forwarded.

Stay tuned.
