Kimmy, I love this type of braised vegetarian dish and eggplant is one of my favorite vegetables. I also like the wet beancurd and always attack that first hee..hee...

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce, it's a rather complete dish for a meal.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, all the ingredients blend well. Leave the tau pau to steep in the gravy for sometime makes it much tastier.

Thanks for sharing your vegetarian dishes. I like to read your blog to get ideas on what to cook when I go vegetarian. If not it will always be chai up (vegetarian duck/goose-I make it myself. Dont like to buy because 1. expensive 2. not so nice 3. not sure of the ingredients they used )or chai choy.

Kimmy said...

Hi Soke Hah, that means must prepare the dish with bigger portion of tau pau otherwise 3 of us [PH, you and I] will be in a fight for it, hehehe!

Kimmy said...

Hi Metta, I cook quite a number of vegetarian dishes during 2 months ago. All very nice. This dish makes a complete vegetarian meal with rice. Enjoy.

What is wet beancurd skin? Is it dried beancurd stick soaked till wet then fry till golden brown?

Kimmy said...

Hi Adeline. wet beancurd skin is aka 'tau pau' in Chinese. It is sold in packet and frozen. In Malaysia, you can get it at the frozen food [vegetarian section] of most supermarkets like Tesco and Giant. Just thaw and pan fry or deep fry them.
