Golden Seaweed Beancurd

Look at this beautiful and colorful dish, yes it comes with a good flavour too. I have created this flavourful dish called Golden Seaweed Beancurd. The seasoned beancurd wrapped with seaweed is labeled as vegetarian fish. I felt it's good to add vegetarian varieties on the dining table once a while. As usual for a lazy mum like me, I would go for something fast and simple to prepare. Kim Chiam is dried lily bud and obtainable from any grocery stores. It need to be soaked to soften prior to cooking. The soaked lily buds are stir fried together with the grounded fresh turmeric, onion and coriander leaves and add as a topping on the steam seaweed beancurd. I just love the freshness aroma of the turmeric and coriander....hmmm yummy and nutritious too!

All you need :

  • a packet of the beancurd with seaweed (vegetarian fish)
  • 1 thumbsize fresh turmeric
  • 1 onion
  • 1 sprig of coriander leaves
  • 30gm dried lily bud (kim chiam) - soak till soften
  • salt to taste
Simple Process :
  • Steam for the beancurd for 5 minutes and set aside
  • Heat a little oil and saute the grounded ingredients - turmeric, onion, corriander leaves - till aromatic
  • Add in the soften lily bud, add some water, salt to taste and allow it to simmer for 5 minutes
  • Lastly, put the cooked toppings on the steamed beancurd
  • Ready to Serve
** You may add more water as the beancurd soaks up the gravy very fast

Have a Healthy and Happy Meal
