    Purabi, the way you describe tofu, I’m thinking I need to incorporate it into my cooking. (I’ve only tried it once.) Great to hear that your son influenced your decision to try it (a future chef in the making?) — you’ll have to let him know he inspired another cook half-way around the world! 🙂

    There are so many great Chinese recipes for tofu – it’s through those that I learned to really appreciate it. Really nice recipe – such great flavors. Thanks for a good read.

    I wasn’t much different when I came to US about a decade back. It took me about 3 years before I started cooking tofu. Now I cook them quite often. I still haven’t found a recipe that makes tofu go great with Indian spices,but with South Asian ingredients it rocks. The shrimp sauce looks awesome. I can’t bear the smell of dried shrimps, so I am thinking clams instead…..

      Minnie, although tofu is never used in Indian cooking as such, but I have tried incorporating in one of my upcoming recipes and it tasted similar to paneer. Of course, it goes exceptionally well with south-Asian ingredients! Oh, replacing with clams is a great idea, but make sure these are chopped small. Thank you for stopping by!

    That looks delicious–I have never worked with dried shrimps before. What kind of texture do they have?

      Thank you for your comment Cucina49. These dried shrimps are harder than the fresh ones, bt once cooked, the become soft. These come cheap and impart a stronger aromato the dish, even when you use a little.

    The sauce looks very delicious. I love collecting tofu dishes but only get a few chances to try them because my daughter has allergies to anything soya-based. Anyhow, I get to try amazing tofu recipes whenever she is in school or when she is with her grannies. My husband and I love tofu. I am sure this will be great for dinner this weekend. Thanks for sharing.

    Yeah, I totally miss the varieties of tofu that sells in Hong Kong. We hardly get anything as fresh in the States, not to mention the type. Your tofu with dried shrimp sauce sounds wonderful. Must be very tasty and flavorful too.

    I love the versatility of tofu. A few years ago,my daughter expressed a strong dislike for tofu. So, the next night I prepared Italian-style stuffed shells with tomato sauce, using tofu instead of ricotta cheese. She loved it and said “This is great, why can’t we have this more often?” I didn’t have the heart to tell her it was tofu.
    This particular recipe you offer looks absolutely wonderful. Tofu is protein rich too, great for vegetarians.

    I’ve never seen tofu served this way. Have never had it steamed that I know of and I know the sauce is new to me. Frying dried shrimp in itself sounds wonderful. I love dried shrimp so I can imagine how the flavor is enhanced when fried. What a great recipe!

    I love the fact that your 4-year-old son was the one to turn you on to tofu. How many parents can boast of that? Obviously, you are raising him right. The dish looks wonderful and inspired.

    The one thing I love about being the cook in the family is learning to use new ingredients. Often, like you, I learn to love them. Your tofu looks mouthwatering. I’ll bet your family was very happy!

    I love this dish. We eat tofu pretty frequently because I believe it’s good for you and it’s a great healthy and light side dish (not to mention most of tofu recipes are easy to prepare). My kids will love this one!
