Why make tofu when you can buy it? That's because of the satisfaction you get out of making your own tofu with just 3 basic ingredients (no extra preservatives!). It is fresh, light and tasty!
You can use this homemade egg silken tofu as a side dish, main meal as well as in soups. My favourite dish is steamed tofu in egg omelet, topped with shredded cucumber and carrot, drizzled in prawn paste sauce (also known as Rojak sauce). I also use it for soups, sukiyaki, mapo tofu.
