Wanna go nearer and see what's inside besides tomato and egg?
I added in homemade pork balls and tofu cubes. I love tofu!
The addition of fish sauce makes it a rather Vietnam-like soup. I might substitute fish sauce for soya sauce the next time I make this again. The taste of fish sauce unfortunately was not widely accepted by many.
I got the recipe from here. It's a Vietnam cuisine, no doubt. I did not follow the minced meat part though. I used WokkingMum's Tofu with Minced Pork to form pork balls before dropping them into the water. I used water and it didn't tasted very bland, which was good!
Again, this makes a large batch so you might probably wanna half it again. I always make more and have it over two days.
For the meat balls:
400g minced pork
4 tbsp light soya sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp cornflour
Dashes of sesame oil
Mix all the above together and form balls. Set aside.
Boil 8 cups of water in a large pot.
Upon boiling, lower heat to medium and drop the meatballs in.
Next, add in 4 tomatoes, cut into 6 wedges each.
Add one whole box of silken tofu, cubed now.
Beat in 4 eggs (well beaten) and swirl with chopsticks to form egg drop.
Finally, add in: 2 tbsp fish sauce
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp chicken powder (I omitted this)
Boil a few minutes and dish up. I did not use and cornflour thickener for this.
I do hope this will be helpful to many. Especially my younger sister who will be studying abroad real soon.
Mango Pudding, the n-th version - I know I am a freak. A freak for everything wobbly and sturdy. I love mango pudding with a passion. I love it so much I could not describe to you how much...
