Hakka Yong Tow Foo

~ Stuffed Tofu puffs, whole Chilli and Okra, and sliced Bitter Melon. All braised in a garlic and pickled soy bean sauce, then topped with a sprinkling of spring onions(shallots)

This is the food of my ancestors in China, going back a thousand years or more. Traditionally made by the hardworking Hakka women at the end of a hard day working in the paddy fields.
