Creamy Salted Egg Yolk Tofu 咸蛋奶黄豆腐
Can never resist any and all things salted egg yolks ! So here’s another one to whet the appetite further ! Fried tofu coated in a creamy and savoury salted egg yolk sauce that’s easily whipped up by a mix of custard sauce, curry leaves, chilli padis and not forgetting the most crucial salted egg yolks !
If you are just looking for the salted egg yolks without the whites, you can find them from the frozen section of local Sheng Shiong Supermarkets where they are being sold in a tray of 10 which I find it really useful to use in such salted egg yolk dishes as the egg whites are generally not required.
I used egg tofu for this recipe as I find that they tend to complement the salted egg yolk sauce better with the eggy-ness and soft tofu texture. The most time consuming part will be the deep frying of the tofu, otherwise the rest of the cooking is literally fuss-free and straight forward. Hope you will enjoy this dish too !
