Crab meat and Tofu soup 蟹肉豆腐羹

I have so long didn't cook this tofu soup  (way back in 2008 !!) which is thicker type of soup , Chinese called 羹 . The taste is similar like shark's fin soup, best to enjoy with black vinegar.

If you can't get fresh crab meat , you may omit or add more crabsticks . Also you can replace chicken stock with ikan bilis stock too, add seasoning powder (chicken or ikan bilis) if you find the soup not enough flavour.
