Yummy Bakes | 1:16 PM | |
This is another simple and nice dish to go with extra helping of white rice ...
And with bean curd puff added - I thought it was interesting.
Cheah, thanks for sharing this is very delicious ...

This is the second time I cook this and I added more bean curd puffs .... a very satisfying dinner

This was my first attempt at this dish

Cheah, why mine look so dark color?

  3. yum! with rice and porridge just as good!!

  4. WOw, look at the gravy, my kids sure ask me to cook,it's their favourite..

  5. Another lovely dish, Seeing you cooking many delicious meals,I must start to cook more now.

  6. Hey, thanks for the link! My favourite ... beancurd puffs. I don't know what brand of dark soya sauce you're using, if you don't like it so dark, you can add less. It's more for colour rather than for flavour. The black beans also contribute to the colour of the dish.

  7. That looks delicious.we ate something like this at a restaurant before and it was really good although a bit salty.Thanks for sharing the recipe,I'd love to try it.
