HOME-MADE FRIED TOFU IN PORK BROTH



I bought 3 bags of unsweetened soyabean milk from the tofu seller at Petanak market to make drinks this morning. So I thought I could quickly whipped up a small tofu for dinner with some of the milk.

I used a small cake pan; one of the RM4.90 Japanese thingy from Parkson. The end result is no bigger than a stick of butter. As in most of my cooking they is no exact formula to follow... I just use whatever is at hand and go from there, based on intuition.

The egg aids as a binding agent, and the extra yolk adds more color to the custard. The custard was steamed at high heat, which caused the bubbles and ripples; as it was going to be deep-fried, its looks and texture didn't matter. However, if smooth form is desired, cover the cake pan, and lower the heat for a gentle steam.
