Braised Tofu [Boys New Favourite]

Braised Tofu in Tomato Sauce

Braised tofu in tomato sauce, another simple tofu dish I cooked for my boys. All vegetables in this dish are my elder boy's favourite. He refused to try at first thought that it was a spicy dish judging form its colour. Could that also be categorized as "hot stove effect"?

Handful baby corns
Handful sliced carrot

And I thought it was spicy too! Guess it was the tomato that gave the red look to it? It looks so good! This is what I call comfort food. =)

It's not easy to fry egg tofu so perfectly and you have done so :)

I enjoy tomato-based sauce and gravy. This is definitely delicious.

I love Japanese tofu - it's silky and smooth, especially when it's cooked ala clay pot. I never tried adding tomatoes, though so I'm gonna give it a shot.
