Three in One

I call myself a foodie.

I love to cook and I love to eat (obviously).

I believe “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well if one has not dined well.”

I am not often bothered about calories but lately, I have to admit that I could lose some weight hence I decided to go for a low-carb dinner tonight.

Here is my recipe for “Three in One”.

“Three” refers to Tofu, Chicken and Vegetables cooked as “One” dish (or main).

I used Tofu as the base and this item is cooked first.

Ingredients for Base

  • 1 piece of Tofu
  • 1 egg (beaten with a dash of light soya sauce)
  • a few pieces of chopped garlic
  • a few Vietnamese Mint (or Curry Leaves)
  • Light Soya Sauce
  • Oil for frying (any oil that is suitable for pan fry)
  1. Heat a wok and put in 2 tablespoons of oil.
  2. Add the chopped garlic and Vietnamese Mint (or Curry Leaves).  Fry till fragrance.
  3. Cut the Tofu into 4 pieces and fry till brown and turn over to the other side.  Add a little light soya sauce.
  4. Pour in the beaten egg and cover the lid till cooked (about 5 minutes).
  5. Transfer the cooked Tofu onto a plate and place all in the centre.

 

Ingredients for Toppings

  • A bunch (few stalks) of Kailan (or Choy Sum) – cut into two lengthwise.
  • Half a chicken breast cut into thick strips
  • Oyster Sauce
  • Chinese Wine (half a small cup)
  • A teaspoon of cornstarch mixed with a bit of water
  • A few pieces of chopped garlic
  • Oil for frying
  1. Using the same wok (no need to wash), add 2 tablespoons of oil.
  2. Add chopped garlic and fry till slightly brown.
  3. Add chicken pieces and oyster sauce (about 3 tablespoons).  Toss and then cover for 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add Kailan (or Choy Sum) and cover for 5 minutes.
  5. Add Chinese Wine and cornstarch for thickening.  Toss till cooked.
  6. Pour the cooked dish on top of the cooked Tofu and heap it up.

 

“Three in One” – That’s my new creation, a new recipe for tonight.

Take a peek at the photo below.  I doubled the portion as I cooked for two tonight.

Can you spot the difference in the two plates?
