Tofu Fah/Tofu Pudding


I love tofu fah or everything made of soy beans. It is not easy for us to get tofu fah here like back in Malaysia where you can get it from the road side stalls. I can only get it from the Asian supermarket and that also not always freshly made. They will have containers of it sitting on the shelf together with other tofu products. Tofu fah is a type of Chinese dessert made from soymilk, the texture is soft and silky and eaten with syrup. After seeing Sonia homemade tofu fah I decided to make some myself too but the easy ways. I used store bought soy milk and without the gypsum. Knowing that gypsum is not good for health I decided to use gelatin. I tried using agar agar power but I still prefer the texture of the tofu fah using gelatin. It might not be 100% like the original tofu fah but it is good enough for me to get over my craving.

Soybean Milk Jelly

When I first saw this recipe at √Člin’s blog I know I just have to try it. I love drinking soy milk and making dessert out of it sounds really good to me. I used Silk Light soy milk for this dessert so didn’t turn out as creamy as I wanted it to be but nevertheless it still taste great. Do check out Elin’s blog as she has great recipes there.

Ingredients:

(A)
2000ml unsweetened soybean milk
¾ cup of sugar
3 screwpine (pandan) leaves – tie into a knot

(B)
1 tsp of agar-agar powder ( I used 2 tsp)
Some fresh fruits - optional

1. Boil the above (A) together in a pot under low heat till the sugar has dissolved and the aroma of screwpine leaves filled the air. Add in the agar-agar powder and stir till it has dissolved into the soybean milk.
2. Turn off the fire and pour into ramekins , add in diced fruits (optional) and leave it to cool.
3. Leave it in the fridge till it has totally set, it will normally take 3 - 4 hours to set. Tilt the ramekin; if no runny liquid seeps out, then it has set though it has a wobbly texture.

Note: I used 2 tsp of agar agar powder as I like firmer jelly.

Sorry for not updating my blog for such a long time. I just got home a few days ago and now my kitchen is back in action again.

I cooked this tofu dish for Diana and myself. Both of us love tofu cook in any ways. It is healthy and great source of protein and we can eat it everyday. This is a great dish to eat with rice especially the crispiness of the Tofu with the spiciness of the topping. Try it, and I'll bet you'll get hooked to it!

3 pieces of firm tofu
Half red pepper - julienne
Half yellow pepper - julienne
Half carrot- julienne
6 medium size shrimps - clean and chopped
1 small onions
1 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp of chili paste
1/2 tsp of sugar
3 tbsp of soy sauce
some spring onion for garnish

1. Heat oil in a pan and fry tofu till it gets golden brown. Remove from heat, drain the oil on paper towel and keep aside. Remove the oil from the frying pan leave about 1 tbsp.
2. Add in garlic and onions and stir-fry for a minute and add in prawns, peppers and carrots. Stir-fry for a few seconds and add in the chili paste.
3. Continue to stir-fry for a few seconds and add in the soy sauce and sugar. Stir until well combined and pour it over the fried tofu.
4. Garnish with spring onion and serve warm with rice.
