this very homely dish is something that my aunt cooks every chinese new year..it's quite simple to make...but very satisfying...!
i like it as a soup but i think it's meant to be a savoury dish with rice...
1 packet of dried bean curd sheet (savoury type - there's two types- sweet and savoury), soaked in cold water til soft.
1 entire head of garlic, half of it minced, the other half left in their skins
200g chicken thigh fillet/ pork belly, sliced into strips
1 tbs oil
1. Marinate chicken with a dash of white pepper, corn flour, light soy sauce and sesame oil for 20 mins. (my aunt doesn't marinate the meat i think...but i marinate all meats given a chance...why?? cos i see my mom do it and i think it increases the depth of flavour and tenderness of the meat.)
2. Heat oil in pan. Add minced garlic and stir fry for 2 mins until fragrant. Add chicken and stir fry briskly til cooked. Add garlic in skins.
3. Add around 1.5 L water and bring to a boil. Add softened bean curd sheets and simmer for around 30 mins. Add more hot water if necessary.
4. Add salt and serve.
