As a lover of savoury dishes, this salted egg yolk tofu is right up my alley. The deep-fried tofu cubes, coated in a buttery and creamy salted egg yolk sauce, is just so delicious.

The fancy Chinese name for this dish is “金沙豆腐”, where “金沙” means “golden sands” literally, referring to the golden hue of the salted egg yolk sauce. Some people also call it “黃金” (golden) tofu.

    Now….it is to get past the deep frying :P

    Must be so fragrant and delicious. I like most dishes coated with salted egg yolk e.g. prawns, crabs, pumpkin, tofu, bittergourd etc.
