5 spice taukwa

Today, went for something simple.  Actually my family loves tofu in any way.  So today I shall try something new.

I recalled my mom always cooked this 5 spice Taukwa.  It is easy and taste good.

One thing I learnt, you must buy tau kwa from wet market.  Never never get it from the supermarket.  The texture is so different.  Another thing is that 5 spice powder quality is better in medical hall than ready pack ones in supermarket.

What you need:

2 pcs Taukwa (from wet market)
2 tsp 5 spice powder (get from medical hall), you can reduce this if you don't fancy too much spices
1 tsp salt
50g plain flour
2 egg, beaten


Pat dry tau kwa.  Cut into quarters.

Combine plain flour, salt and 5 spice powder.  Whisk well.

Dip tau kwa into flour mixtures, then egg mixture and flour mixture.

Heat a small frying pan with 2 - 3" of oil.

Gently lower into a frying pan and fry until golden on one side.  Repeat on the other side.

Drain and serve.
