This amazing Japan egg tofu with mincemeat combination is a classic Chinese dish and it is also one of our family favourite meals! Egg tofu is a Japan style tofu made with eggs and soy milk. The texture is like chawanmushi, soft and smooth.

VARIATION

  • Tofu: You can use regular tofu for this recipes too! Soft to medium textures are fine.
  • Spicy: You may notice most of my dishes are baby friendly or toddler friendly (without chillies) to suite my kid.You may add some chillies (in step 3) if you would like some heat on the sauce.

MULTI COOKING

You may cook the rice together while steaming the tofu in step 6. Simply add the rinsed rice into simmering basket and adjust the water to level with the rice (enough to cover the rice). Remove the tofu after 15 minutes. Continue to cook the rice for another 3 minutes.
