Soft Bean Curd with Soy Sauce — 4 Comments

  1. You may also steam the bean curd instead of boiling, but use low steam for 5 mins, do not overcook the bean curd. Drain away the water as bean curd may release some water during steaming.

  2. It really up to individual preference. This dish was meant to be scooped with spoon onto rice, with some of the gravy, hence it should be soft. You can even use tou hua 豆花 (without the sugar syrup) for this dish.
