Egg Tofu with Assorted Vegetables

Hmmm …. I just love this dish. So many things to eat. Oh! You can also invite your vegetarian friends over for dinner with this dish too!

  • 1 tube of egg tofu, cut into thick slices
  • 4 baby corn, sliced
  • 8 sweet peas, remove vein
  • 5 shitake mushrooms, sliced
  • ½ carrot, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Oil for deep-frying
  • Cornflour mixture
  • 1/2 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • 50 ml water

How to do it:
  1. Dust the tofu with corn flour and deep fry.
  2. Remove when it turned golden brown and set aside.
  3. In a wok, add 1 teaspoon of oil, sauté the garlic until fragrant.
  4. Add in all the vegetables and stir- fry till half cooked.
  5. Now add the fried egg tofu and the seasonings. Then bring to a boil.
  6. Add in the cornflour mixture to thicken the sauce.
  7. Serve.

  • If you have a hot plate, you can heat it up. Add an egg then pour the whole thing over it. Then it becomes Hot Plate Egg Tofu.
  • You can add prawns or meat if you are not having vegetarian friends over for dinner.

  1. Hi Wokking Mum
    I chanced upon this older recipe of yours yesternight and decided to cook it for dinner today. It was DELICIOUS!! Simply but so tasty!

    Just wanna ask u how you make the outer tofu skin more 'tender' when deep-fried... like how the tze char stalls do it. My skin was a bit tough leh.

    Thank you!

  2. Cindy,
    Thanks for the compliments.

    Hmm ... I jsut dust the tofu lightly with cornflour not thick and the oil must be hot so you dont need to deep fry too long to get the golden brown colour, then the skin will be thick. Just a thin layer only. still soft and tender. That's what I do. ;)

  3. I am going to try this tonight! Thanks for the recipe! :D

  4. Can you pan fry the tofu instead of deep frying?

  5. Thanks for the recipe. Love the way you cut the carrots into lovely shapes. How do u do it?
