Spicy Minced Chicken With Egg Tofu

Spicy Minced Chicken With Egg Tofu

Cooking a meal is one of the most personal and intimate things you can do for someone.The special thing about a home cooked meal is the feeling of abundance it provides, everything you have and need is right in front of you and within arms' reach. Watching my dad cook was always something I wanted to try. Now that I can, I cannot get enough. There are so many different things to try and no matter how I feel, I want to cook. 

If there is one thing that will not make me stressed, its cooking. I love just going over to the my kitchen and making something that not only will take my stress away, but eat some delicious food as well. There are so many different types of food out there that there are endless possibilities of what one can cook. Whether it may be a different style, type, or even just a different version - up to your creativeness and patience. I just love to cook as well as to eat. I have always love Chinese Cuisine so much and always lookout for preparing them at home as my family also enjoy it as much as I do..The following recipe is something that I always look forward when I visit my parents. 

Tofu is the generic ingredient and most loved by my family members. Its not only healthy, it's so easy to cook and can be paired with almost anything ingredient. Each tofu has its unique texture and taste and I have a crazy for  "EGG TOFU" I use egg tofu because of its eggy taste and heavy density. When seared, the tofu crisp up on the outside and remains soft inside. A dish worth trying at home to get the satisfying taste of Chinese food at your doorstep !! Whether you're with friends or family, or just cooking alone, there is always a certain joy in cooking, The satisfaction of having something that you just made with your own two hands, and then the compliments from other. Nothing beats that.
