This is another recipe I dug out during my stay at my parents sometime back. It's really a simple dish but full of nutrition. I guess one can play around with the ingredients to be added into the beancurd mixture ie. fish paste, shrimps, crabmeat, vegetables etc. Easy to digest, best for younger kids or old folks. Like any of my other dishes... this is easy to prepare too. Dig in!
Steamed Minced Beancurd
3 pcs soft beancurd, mashed
150g minced meat
3 pcs mushrooms, soaked and diced finely
1 tbsp fried shallots
3 eggs beaten
1 tsp cornflour
1 tbsp chicken powder (I omitted)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 salt to taste (it's a bit bland, so need to add more the next time)
1 tsp sesame oil
1. Mix all ingredients and put into greased 8 inch casserole.
2. Steam over medium heat till form and cooked. Insert knife in the middle of dish to test.
3. Serve hot with rice.
These steamed beancurd can be cut into cubes or blocks when cold and deep fried in batter for a delicious difference.
