Whew! Glad I found your site. Was shopping in the Asian store earlier, and had to buy the yellow tofu as it looked to be interesting (and firm!). Yours was the first recipe I could find. So, what else have you added to the recipe? There is something red in the photo.

Thanks for posting.

Hi Rebecca,

Thank you :) Oh, that is red chilli, I love chilli, so I added that as garnish and for the spiciness.

Cheers :)
