Firm Bean Curd With Minced Pork and Prawns

Bean curd on its own has very little flavor. However, with little bit of seasoning and ingredients, it can be easily turned into a delicious Chinese cuisine. This humble little thingy always act as a bland background for its mates. Any dish will taste good when bean curd is paired with seafood, meat, or vegetables.

Bean curd with minced pork and prawns is one my favorite dish. I learned this from my mom but i did some minor modification. I dare to say that it tastes as good as my mom's version. :) This is an appetizing dish that serves well with rice or porridge. Give it a try and let me know what you think about it.
