Spicy Egg Tofu With Minced Chicken


Spicy Egg Tofu With Minced Chicken
One of my favorite dishes at Chinese restaurants is the Sizzling Tofu. Tofu is first pan-fried before being laid on a hot plate. As the minced chicken gravy is poured over it, the hot plate sizzles and hence, its name. Most of us don't own a hot plate,therefore sizzling tofu is out of the picture. But we can always do something similar in taste, can’t we? The star ingredient of today's recipe is one of my absolute favorites  egg tofu. Egg tofu is a more flavorful and makes a more delicious dish as plain tofu is rather bland to me.These egg tofu are lightly dusted with flour,pepper salt and chilli powder-then pan fried til crispy.This dish was a hit with my guests and was not too difficult to whip up either, although pan-frying the tofu does require a bit of patience, if you want, simply deep-fry the tofu which will be quicker.  I do hope you will give this a try .Greetings and happy cooking from Taste of Saras Kitchen. Have a great weekend..see ya soon with another dish from my kitchen to yours !!!!
