                                                                          Clay pot Tofu is a Chinese dish.

Tofu, also known as bean curd, is prepared from Soy milk and then pressing the   

resulting curds into solid white blocks of varying softness .

 We used to have it whenever we visit the outside restaurant in Aus.

My sis made a try in preparing this dish and it came nicely as well.

It is prepared in a clay pot. You can even prepare it with a large vessel or wok if you 

don't have a clay pot.

She tried it with Japanese egg tofu.
