Egg Tofu, Prawns And Peas In Silky Egg Sauce 滑蛋蝦球玉子豆腐 - "Malaysian Monday 79"

Well guess what? Home alone again and that means time for my beloved tofu to make another appearance. This comforting childhood favourite of mine is extremely delicious and will only take a mere 20 minutes to prepare.

I used silken egg tofu that I shallow fried first to alter the texture but any type of soft tofu will work equally well. You may use chicken or some of my everyday pork and prawns mince if you have some prepared.

P.S Last month's MMM roundup is up, please head to my friend Shannon's (Just as Delish) to check out the delicious offerings.

recipe from the tummies' kitchen

6 prawns, peeled reserving tails, deveined
1/2 a cup of frozen peas, thawed

Saute garlic with a little oil then add stock and seasonings, bring it to a boil.

Add tofu and peas and cook for a minute.
