This is another simple and easy homey recipe which I tried. Surprisingly good and tasty dish to serve with piping hot plain porridge especially for me cos' I love soya products.
If you prefer this dish to be more spicy, used small red and green chillies like I did or you can substitute with the less spicy type of chillies and capsicum.
The salty black beans are tasty and it is always good with the porridge. Do try this dish if firm beancurd is one of your favorite food ingredients, you will like it. You can omit the garlic if serving this as vegetarian dish.
