Black Bean Yong Tau Fu

Just in case you think that I'm eating nothing but sweets, I have decided to do a YTF post today YTF-Yong Tau Fu. It's another of my "must have" when I return to SG. Although limited in selections, there is a shop nearby that sells fresh yong tau fu every Saturday. I bought a few packets of different variaties (e.g. bitter gourd, fried bean curd..etc) and froze it.

One of my favorite way to have this, is in noodles soup. However, I used this in a stirfry as well. Lots of garlic, freshly chopped chili and black bean sauce is the way to go!

Black Bean YTF
400grams of mixed YTF
3 Tablespoons of black bean sauce (go for Lee Kum Kee, Ayam brand isn't as good)
1 tsp of sugar
1 tablespoon of garlic
1 chopped chili

Heat oil in pan. Stir fry garlic and chili till fragrant. Add YFT and stir fry. Stir in the sauce. Toss for a few more minutes. Serve with hot steamy rice.

Besides Laksa, what other ways would you use YTF?

At least you can get fresh ones near your place. I had trouble finding them back in California!
Go try the Hakka-style YTF when you are Singapore. They serve it with thick bee hoon and minced meat sauce!

Oh my goodness!! I am making yong tau fu tonight! Lol! Sometimes I do this dry method, with soya beans paste, sugar, garlic, sesame oil. We don't do chilli much in our house.

I once bought canned ytf in Manchester many years ago. Never seen it since and unobtainable fresh anywhere in the UK. I do miss this dish!
