This year Christmas is celebrated with much cheer than the last as my Dad and my sisters with their family joined in the party. Together with my in-laws, my house was packed to the brim. Everyone chipped in with the menu and this is one particular dish that I just must tell you. Nyonya appetizer or finger food. This is called 'Taukwa Sumbat' or Stuffed Beancurd.
My family love this and it's been ages since we had this..I mean, really, really a long time.
This is the bean curd, fried and cut into triangles. Slit it open in the center to stuff in the cucumber strips and beansprouts
This is great..the bean curd is so soft and kinda melt in your mouth.
This is eaten with peanut sauce which is made of peanut, of course, and some chilies and vinegar, salt and sugar.
I served this in my newly acquired replicate of Nyonya 'antique' plate which hopefully, will be an antique itself after 50 years to come...lol. It's hand painted, mind you. Very pretty isn't it? And very, very expensive. If you are interested to acquire one yourself, drop me an email...haahaa
And the genius behind this dish, none other than the Master Chef himself, MY DAD!
Thanks Dad, your Taukwa Sumbat was superb!!
