It took me half a day preparing the soup and stuffed the fillings into the beancurds and others but it really worth it. At least they finished all of it and even drank all the soup..:) And the most satisfying words from my daughter..."Yummy, I like this mummy"!!
Ingredients for the fillings:
200g Mackerel ( I used spanish mackerel) ~ Scraped out the flesh, make into small balls and soaked i salt water
50g minced pork (with fats)
2 tsps salted fish (panfry & mashed)
dash of pepper and salt to taste
~ Drain the fish paste and mix into minced pork. Mix in pepper and salt to taste. Set aside.
Ingredients for the soup:
The above Mackerel bone
50g yellow beans
5-6 cups water
1 tbsp fish sauce
~ Toast the yellow beans until slightly brown and washed clean.
~ Pan fry the fish bone and beans with a little oil until fragnant.
~ Pour in water and bring to boil. At low heat simmer for 30 mins.
Stuffed the fillings in all the prepared taufu, brinjals, bitter gourd, red chili, lady fingers...etc.
You can even make the fillings into small balls like fish balls. Then pan fry with some oil before putting them into the pot of soup. Note that for the white tau fu, just pan fry where the fillings were been stuffed.
Then about the brinjals, splash some light soy sauce in the pan when its almost done. Dish up and its ready to serve.
This dish is nice to serve with white steamed rice or noodles. Of course its good enough to go by its own...:)
We had a wonderful dinner last night and we were too full to have any desserts..hehe! Guess my daughter was the most happiest one, besides her favorite meal she had a big surprise gift from her daddy's trip! Me ah...a few packs of pepper...:(
Have a nice weekend...!!
