Egg Tofu Soy Sauce


Honestly, I can't comprehend. Why are people struggling with time for cooking when there's choices to easy-preasy one complete dish (Chilli Stir Fried Potato, Mango Salad Vegetarian, Thai Style Sea Bass Apple Slaw & Tomato Vegetable Soup)? Tell you? Is it a habit we picked up from our mums who had all the time on earth to spend all the time in the kitchen for putting up a meal (Chilli Chicken Black Peas, Cauliflower Curry, Tapioca Poriyal & Vegetable Green Curry)? Well and good, if time is sunshiny for you, go ahead, be a beloved kitchen goddess. I on the other hand, trust me, I really can't put with sweating profusely while cooking (Fried Mee, Indian Chicken Curry, Prawn Cabbage Coconut Gravy & Thai Style Spicy Eggplant), and lets not forget coming with it washing up, mopping and ensuring we have done our marketing for getting the ingredients ready. Therefore, the best logic and reasoning for me is keeping it simple in my kitchen, which by far I think I have already repeated like multi million hundred over times (Fried Lotus Root, Curry Leaves Hummus, Thai Papaya Salad & Chinese Fried Rice).


Egg tofu, for your information is one of those ingredients that can stay put in your fridge for maybe a week? Get it when you do your weekly marketing and use it for this simply put together one wholesome Egg Tofu Soy Sauce (Spicy Tuna Potato, Avocado Dip Fresh SaladCorn Soup & Grilled Salmon). All you need then is cooked rice before you alongside your family members dive in, provided you are not living with food fussy pots (Ikan Bilis Noodle Soup & Minced Chicken Cabbage Soup). Even so, I think sometimes we have to close our ears and eyes to those our loved ones who fuss for no apparent reason. Believe me, when they are hungry, they will eat or let them starve. Eventually, if they can't understand that home cooked one dish is the simple healthy pleasure, unless you have other tricks up your sleeves for pampering them or you won't mind for the sake of  love slogged in your kitchen (Crispy Japanese Tofu). Right. Can we like don't debate on this Egg Tofu Soy Sauce (Masala Tofu & Spicy Tofu Curry) any further? Thank you.
