'Yong Tau Fu' / Stuffed Vegetables With Savoury Sauce

I made some ' Yong Tau Fu ' ( stuffed chillies, bittergourd, okra and eggplant ) unfortunately there were no tofu because I left them out during my grocery shopping. So actually this dish should be called 'yong liew' 😂 cooked in savoury sauce. Our one dish meal for today's lunch and dinner . The meat fillings comprises of minced pork ( fat and lean), dried shrimps, chopped garlic, chopped green onions, chopped chilli, white pepper, light soy sauce, chicken powder,  sesame oil and corn flour.  Just give it a quick stir till all are mixed well and texture of filling has turned slightly sticky.  Stuffed veggies and pan fried them in shallow oil till both sides of the fillings has turned golden brown and the veggies is partially cooked . Made a simple savoury sauce and add in the fragrant stuffed veggies and simmer for 15 mins. Dish up and served with rice.
