  1. Oh YUM! I'm drooling just by looking at your fabulous dishes! I love steamed tofu & these even better with egg, another favorite of mine! Glad to find your awesome blog with delicious recipes too! Happy to be your follower! Looking forward for your next post! Have a nice day! :)

  2. Hi Kit. Thank you for the compliment & welcome to my blog :D

  3. Hi, when u steam the tofu together with the egg, there will be water from the tofu. Will that affect the eggs?

    1. Hi Eunice, sorry for the late reply. Yes, it will. So must add lesser water into the egg mixture :-) here I stated 100ml, so you can try adding 70ml of water. All the best :-)
