Tofu Under The River 河低香滑豆腐

The other day the veggie stall offered me 2 packets of handmade soft tofu for RM2.00. I don't mind taking them cause I like tofu. Actually, cooking with soft tofu is a big challenge cause it can't easily go along with any recipes. Since hubby love spring onion and prawns, I think this simple recipe will sure capture his attention. Two of our favourite in one dish sounds good to me. And then I pick up a funny title for this tofu dish. haha..... It looks like one though ! Don't you think so ? haha..... Please read on for more.
