2nd attempt of cooking Smooth Egg Tofu + facts about Brocolli.

السّلام عليكم
PEACE be upon YOU! ;)
yesterday i cooked 'Sayur Kacang Buncis' a.k.a. Green Beans a.k.a. Haricot Vert, together with some Broccoli and the remaining of my Smooth Egg Tofu,, [only one cylinder left. :( ]
but this time, [which was my second attempt of cooking the Egg Tofu] the tofu tastes much much better i think! :D
i was right, it would tastes better if it's deep-fried until it turned golden brown as i told in my previous entry where i share the recipe HERE.
in order to use a little amount of cooking oil, so i was frying them in a small pan, and cut the Tofu into thinner size, so that i could still 'deep-fry' them with a little amount of oil. :D

okay, here i would like to share a simple tips on 'the best way to cut the green beans'!
so that it would be tastes much better, the deliciousness of your sauce would seeps into the veggie, and you can taste the juicy-ness of the green beans once you bite them!
HAHAHA. so hyperbola!
it was taught by my aunt by the way. :D

first, cut out both of the ends of the green beans, after that, cut them into half along the line of the veggie, then only you cut them into smaller pieces as you wish. :)
*as seen in the picture, i'm lefty! :P

oh ya, just now when i was browsing the Reader's Digest website i found an article about Broccoli.
since i'm writing about the food, why not i share it here right? ;) here's the quotes. >>

"You may see broccoli as just another vegetable, but it can improve his odds against heart disease and cancer -- the two greatest health threats to men over 35. "Broccoli contains the immune-boosting vitamins A, C and E, as well as the minerals magnesium and potassium, which both promote healthy blood pressure," says Adler. The lifesaving stalk also helps lower the level of homocysteine in his body, an amino acid that's been found to increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and other heart-related problems. To keep him cancer-free, it's also loaded with iron, calcium, fiber, beta-carotene and a phytochemical called sulphoraphane, which has been shown to have potent anticancer properties, especially when it comes to the prostate and colon."
the article was focusing on man's diet FYI, that's why it was using the pronouns "him" and "his". :)
i think that's all for now. 
daaaa~ :D


the third attempt:
add in a dash of corn flour to made the gravy thickens like this. :D
