Egg Tofu, Prawns And Peas In Silky Egg Sauce

It’s so silky, savoury and smooth, it’s so delicious you don’t want to stop. Egg Tofu, Prawns and Peas in Silky Egg Sauce is a dish of Pan-Fried Egg Tofu cooked together with peas and prawns in a thick egg savoury gravy.


This was one of my favourite dish’s ways back in Malaysia, I used to order this quite frequently in Chinese restaurants there. It’s that silky, smooth and savoury flavour and texture that makes order it again and again. I love topping it with rice as the gravy coats each grain with that delicious sauce, I am sure this will be perfect with crispy noodles too.
