Silken tofu(?) with fruit in Beijing
Several years ago when I was in Beijing, I had a dish that had a custardy fried tofu, fruit, and a sauce I believe was made from the fruits' juice. I only remember there being pineapple and watermelon, but there could have been other fruits in there.
I'm pretty sure the tofu was silken tofu as the waiter said the dish was "Riben dofu" or "Japanese Tofu".
Does anyone know what it's called? Better yet, if you know the recipe that would be awesome. I've been craving it lately. =)
Thanks in advance.
Are you talking about Chinese almond tofu dessert?
Real almond tofu isn't made of soy bean (like typical tofu); rather, it's agar agar, flavored with almond extract and evaporated milk and sweetened by white sugar.
Because of the high volume of liquid, the agar agar mixture is transformed into a soft tofu-like substance. This dessert is often served with fruit cocktail.
