I came across this dish while having lunch in Sri Muda Shah Alam about 6 yrs ago. If I have time, I'd use fresh fish, but if I don't have the time, I'll just use packed fish paste from the supermarket (found it in tesco), works just as fine.
*** First prepare ur steaming wok. Boil 2 cups of water.
(A)1 pack smooth tofu (about a cup)
(B)1/2 pack fish paste (about 1/2 cup)
1/2 tsp salt
a dash of pepper
1 small egg
(C)2 Tbsp steam fish seasoning (u can use soy sauce, but reduce amount to 1.5 Tbsp)
1 Tbsp fried onion oil
some chopped green onions
Mix (B) ingredients together, and break up the fish paste into smaller bits, but don't incorporate everything into a paste itself. Then, add in smooth tofu. Break up the tofu into smaller pieces and mix together. Steam in rapid boiling water for 5 minutes. When done, pour 2 tbsp of ‘steam fish seasoning’ (soy sauce also can), 1 tbsp fried onion oil and garnish with some sprinkling of chopped green onions. All done within 10 minutes.
the mashed fish paste and beancurd.. make sure the beancurd is still chunky.
the type of tofu I used, and the fish paste bought from Tesco.
