Serves: 2
  • 1 pkt egg tofu, cut into thick slices
  • 3 salted egg yolks, coarsely mashed (if using uncooked ones, to steam before use)
  • 1½ tbsp planta margarine
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 chili padis
  • 1 sprig curry leaves
  • some oil for deep frying
  1. Heat up some cooking oil in a pot till very hot. Deep fry the sliced tofu in the hot oil in batches. (Note: The tofu will turn golden brown quickly if the cooking oil is hot enough, so keep a watch out for it ! Once the tofu starts to turn golden brown, remove and drain, otherwise the tofu will lose moisture and turns dry.)
  2. Drain the deep fried tofu on some paper towels to remove excess grease and set aside.
  3. Heat up a wok with the planta margarine. Add in the minced garlic, chili padi and curry leaves. Saute till fragrant.
  4. Add in the salted egg yolks and allow it to sizzle until foamy.
  5. Add in the deep fried tofu from Step 2. Stir gently to mix well.
  6. Off the flame and serve hot immediately.
