Steamed Silken Tofu

I fancy Chinese food ever since I was studying in university. Every time we hanging out to Mahkota Parade (the famous shopping complex at that time), i will choose to eat Wanton Mee for lunch. There is no place that i can eat a HALAL Wanton Mee except there. And i like it till now.


I found that most of their dishes sometimes required many types of soy sauce (dark, light, sweet and etc). The moment I decide to cook my own Chinese dishes is when we having diner at Baba Nyonya here at Muar town. We ordered Spicy Tamarind Fish, Mixed Vege and also Steamed Silken Tofu.


It does not look special to me. But it did when i first taste it. I was well, Wowed !

Then i decided to give it a try. More, I prefer to eat it on its own. Got the recipe from here
