Hot Plate Sizzling Tofu

Hot Plate Sizzling Tofu


I would like to special dedicate this dish to Love2cook who has been asking me to share this recipe for her. This simple tofu dish is popular at the "tai chow" hawker stalls and Chinese restaurant.. beaten egg and tofu mixture is poured into a hot plate and created a sizzling effect..



Hot Plate Sizzling Tofu


The shop owner told me have to special care of this hot plate, have to immediate pat dry after washed, brush and coat entire hot plate with oil before storing it. These steps is to prevent the plate from rusty. I bought this hot plate at RM 20++..

First time landed here, fell in love with the sizzling tofu. I was searching for the secret ingredient after we had a wonderful dinner in a korean restaurant. Its rice wine..I did not think of this..added this to my shopping list.
