    1. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large frying pan or wok over medium heat, and stir-fry the vegetables until tender. Mix in the ginger, and season with salt and pepper. Remove vegetables from frying pan, and set aside.
    2. Place the eggs in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the cornflour, salt and pepper. Dip tofu cubes first in the egg, then the cornflour mixture to coat.

    Tried this last night and it was really good. Even tasted good a few hours later when it had gone cold.  -  24 Jan 2010


    Rubbish! No flavour whatsoever!  -  14 Feb 2014


    My wife loves when I cook this for her. I made a few changes to make it a little more interesting though. First, I use The Best Thai Peanut Sauce recipe I found on allrecipes. Instead of frozen stir-fry veggies I use fresh red bell pepper, a yellow pepper, fresh snow peas and a can of sliced water chestnuts. I also use a light flour instead of the cornstarch. Before serving I also add a little extra sauce as my wife likes it that way. Personally, I really enjoy making this dish!  -  23 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
