    Hi, thx for sharing this recipe.. Look really yummy..
    Btw, sorry for my stupid question, but do put the mixture directly to the steaming tray? (the tray that have lots of holes in it). Won’t it be very watery?
    And when we steam, do we still wrap it in cling wrap?

    Hi hi, is there any difference between Japanese beancurd and the common unicurd tofu? Thanks!

  4. Yixi says:

    Thanks! Do you think it is ok to use normal tofu or will the taste be weird?

      Yixi: You’re always welcome!! It’s fine to use plain silken tofu but the taste will be slightly bland. I did that too when I ran out of egg tofu. 😉

    I had just came across your site and tried this dish. It is so delicious and my hubby like it so much. Thanks so much for your sharing. I added in corn and chopped mushroom. It is tasty as well 🙂

    Looking forward to seeing more sharing from you. Especially love steam dish as I am a working mum who cant afford to do much cleaning.

    Thanks once again 🙂
