Stir Fry Homemade Silky Egg Tofu With Veggie

Being able to make my own egg tofu is a sheer joy that money cannot buy and something I am proud to present to my family and friends. Eventhough I have make this many times, but each times it still brings joy and happiness to me...something I cannot describe to you in words :)

 It is  much healthier without the preservative in them.  I made the egg tofu in the early morning ( 6.00am) and managed to cook this dish in 30 minutes . After which I have to leave for work at 7.30 am . It takes only 13 minutes to make the egg tofu.  A very simple to make egg tofu that I am sure all of you will be delighted to learn or most of you already knows how to make your own egg tofu :)))  Read on to learn how to make your own healthy tofu for your family :)  You must be wondering why I cooked this so early in the morning and on a working day too....I prepared this for a very dear and close friend of the family , Miss M . Hope she loves this dish for her lunch and hoping she will request for more :p  I love to make people happy with the food I cook. There is a saying -  " if you put love into something you do, it will turn out great " and for this egg tofu...I have put in lots of love :)))

All you need is 500 ml of unsweentened soymilk ( I bought my soymilk from the famous soy milk shop" Funny Mountains ' the unsweetened one ' which costs me RM4.50 for a big bottle . Half I used it for making egg tofu and the other half for making dessert - Soy Milk Custard :)  and with only 5 or 6 grade A eggs you can have your own homemade tofu !

I used 5 eggs only for I wanted a more silkier and smoother tofu. And the trick to make it smoother is to sieve the egg & soy milk mixture before steaming. And remember to steam it for only 13 minutes under medium low heat.  The cling wrap is to make it easier to take out the tofu after steaming. I steamed them in rice bowls lined with cling wrap . The bottom layer is for easy removal after steaming and the top layer is to prevent droplets of water into the tofu while steaming.

The veggies I used are carrots, sweet peas, sweet baby corns and oyster mushrooms. I stir fry the veggies till cooked and added in oyster sauce seasoning and thickening  as  gravy for this tofu dish. Simple and delicious homemade egg tofu with veggies delights.... a dish my Piggies love .  Egg tofu is versatile. You can deep fried them and dip with chilli sauce or you can have them plain with just garlic oil as topping or cook them the way I did  :)

look how silky these tofu are :) I love them muchie :)
 espeically if they are homemade ...beautiful


I love to stock up soy milk in the fridge so that at any time I can have tofu or soy milk custard for dessert :)
