346. Taugeh & Tauhu

Do you like Taugeh (bean sprouts)?

It's cheap and easy to prepare. Plus it's healthy to eat lots of it!

Unfortunately, not many like it, including my 3rd daughter Aya. Fortunately for me, since she just cannot survive eating rice without vegetable, she will eat it, with lots of grumpiness which I pretend not to hear.

Remember my last post on 'Kari Ikan Terusan'? My vegetable dish was 'Taugeh' & 'Tauhu'.

I cooked 'Taugeh' without adding anchovies at all. I always prefer it without.

My Taugeh

To cook, just saute 1 sliced medium sized shallot, 1 garlic and 1 red chilli.

Add the washed 'taugeh' and stir quickly.

Add salt and ajinomoto to taste. That's it!

Now, each time hubby bought 'Taugeh' to bring home, he will surely would buy 1 piece of the soft 'Tauhu Cake'. You know there are 2 types right? The other type is much harder :)

Anyway, what I wanted to bring up here was, I don't cook the 'Tauhu Cake' together with the 'Taugeh'. I sliced them into small pieces and deep fry them. And I can have 2 vegetable dishes instead of one!

Do you do that? :) I mean fry them.

Sliced soft Tauhu Cake

Yes, deep fried !

When a bit cooled, try sprinkle some salt and ajinomoto over the fried tauhu cake.

You can eat them with rice or on it's own just like you eat your French Fries!

I love taugeh especially being fried together with salted fish and spring onions.

Fried taufu very hard to cook. Because the oil will be splatting here and there. Just like frying fish. So scary. haha

FOr me, taugeh is neutral only....don't really hate it, nor do I really love to eat taugeh. As for tauhu, I only like Japanese tauhu becos all the other types of tauhu seems bland to me.

Puan Isah said...

Yes reanaclaire, need to eat taugeh while hot, then it is nice :)

Puan Isah said...

mNhL - scary LOL...now mak isah know you don't like frying food. Same here, mak isah will do it only if had to.

For this fried tauhu, mak isah awal2 dah put used newspaper all around my non stick pan ha ha..

Puan Isah said...

Oh Japanese tauhu? is it easily available over at your place Alice? Mak isah can only find these local tauhu over here.
