Japanese Egg Tofu Soy Sauce


Honestly, let me ask you? Why are you struggling your time in the kitchen when you have a choice to easy-preasy one wholesome spectacular dish (Chilli Stir Fried Potato, Mango Salad Vegetarian, Thai Style Sea Bass Apple Slaw & Tomato Vegetable Soup)? Tell you? Maybe its just habit, habit we picked up from our mothers who didn't work, and so, they had all the time on earth to sweat in the kitchen (Chilli Chicken Black Peas, Cauliflower Curry, Tapioca Poriyal & Vegetable Green Curry)? Whatever said, sweating infinitely is one I really can't avoid. I can't no matter what. Imagine cooking in our Malaysian bombastic hot weather? Let me tell you that no matter how stylish or big your kitchen is, I believe sweating is unavoidable (Fried Mee, Indian Chicken Curry, Prawn Cabbage Coconut Gravy & Thai Style Spicy Eggplant).


And for the sake of my good life, stop advising me to install an air-cond or fan in the kitchen. Will it really work? Tell me. I'm all ears. Cooking in air-cond by keeping windows close, at the same time, incurring additional electricity cost? Fan by far is not conducive too. I am telling you. Please open your ears really big and listen. Do you know what is the consequence of fan spilling in the kitchen? Aha, it will of course keep us cool, how about the cooking fire flame? How you really given it a thought? Think, for my sake. I know what I am talking about because I have the biggest major kitchen experience. I am mostly in the kitchen, one which significantly became prominent once I quit my full time job to work from home (Fried Lotus Root, Curry Leaves Hummus, Thai Papaya Salad & Chinese Fried Rice).

For all that logic and reasoning, end of the day, let me tell you that fan neither air-cond will not-not-not do justice in our Malaysian kitchen (Spicy Tuna Potato, Avocado Dip Fresh SaladCorn Soup & Grilled Salmon) So, we might as well close the chapter, but we can surely minimise our time in the kitchen by cooking simple dishes (Ikan Bilis Noodle Soup & Minced Chicken Cabbage Soup). Take this Japanese Egg Tofu Soy Sauce? As I have already said earlier, it is a wholesome one complete meal. All you need then is a plate of rice, oh, don't discount rice porridge either. Diviners. How to make this Japanese Egg (Crispy Japanese Tofu) Tofu Soy Sauce? Take it from this point please. Sincerely and clearly, recipe from me to all you cooking enthusiasts (Masala Tofu & Spicy Tofu Curry). Bye for now.

Ingredients
Two packets of Japanese tofu - gently remove and cut into round pieces
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
4 shallots - slice thinly
1/2 inch ginger - slice thinly
Chilli flakes - as needed
Spring onion - slice
2 tbsp of oil (healthier the virgin as ever virgin oil but pricey you know)
Salt for taste (only if needed)

Method
Fry shallots in oil till crispy.
Remove and keep aside.
In the same oil, sauté ginger.
Add soy sauce, oyster sauce and chilli flakes.
Pour 1/2 cup of water.
Season with salt.
Stir and simmer.
Gently drop in tofu.
Simmer for a minute or two and dish out.
Garnish with fried shallots and spring onion.
Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please. Your support is my pride. Thank you everyone.
