Pipa Tofu / 琵琶豆腐

This tofu should look like the Chinese string instrument "pi pa" or a fruit loquat, also called “pi pa” in mandarin, hence the name Pipa Tofu. Add some chopped shrimps into the mixture if you are a seafood lover.

  • 200 g Tofu
  • 50 g Ground meat
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp All-purpose flour
  1. Mash the tofu with a tablespoon. Soak the dried mushrooms in some water until soft. Drain and chop. Cut the baby corns and carrots into the same size, green onion into chunks.
  2. Place the tofu, ground meat, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and flour in a bowl. Mix all the ingredients. Form the mixture into oval shape with a tablespoon. Heat up some oil in a frying-pot. Lower the shaped tofu into the oil and fry until golden crispy. Remove and drain.
  3. Heat a skillet with a teaspoon of oil until hot. Add in baby corns and carrots. Stir for about 1 minute and remove. Add in spring onion, dried mushroom and stir until fragrant. Pour in the stock, light soya sauce and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook to a boil and return the tofu to the skillet. Turn the heat down, cover and simmer for a few minutes until all the ingredients well-combined. Dish off and serve immediately.
