Here’s another way to innovate your Ngoh Hiang during CNY ! Now making these reminds me of a colleague who loves nothing but eggs. Every time we have a company lunch or something, she will have nothing but all kinds of eggs ! Well, this will certainly appeal to those who loves eggs and since it’s the CNY festive, what’s better than not to give the usual Ngoh Hiang a different twist.
To add on to the eggy part, I used egg tofu in the Ngoh Hiang filling too ! And I excluded minced meat this time and incorporate only all the minced seafood with my “agar-agar” marinade. Coz eggs tend to absorb oil when deep fried, hence the exclusion of meat helps to reduce its oiliness.
I am surprised the end result is quite good, or should I say superb ?! Hahaha, okok I know I am being exaggerating again. But it’s really not bad and I am sure it’s a good attempt especially if you have kids to serve. The traditional meat rolls might just be a tad too boring or unappealing to the kiddos. So this Stuffed Egg Tofu Ngoh Hiang should be just nice to get their attention.
It’s simple to beef up too. Remove the egg yolks from some hard boiled eggs, mix the egg yolks with the Ngoh Hiang filling, stuffed the filling into the egg and deep fried the eggs with shells on ! Remove the shells only after the deep frying to prevent the eggs from turning dark or getting burnt during the deep frying.
Let alone the kids, I am sure the adults will love these Stuffed Egg Tofu Ngoh Hiang too ! ^-^
