Stir Fried Tofu with Chinese Mustard (Gai Choy) - Meatless Recipe

Mustard greens are most often stir-fried or pickled and there's where our salted veggies (ham choy/kiam chai) come from! Our asam gai choy or kiam chai boey is often made with leftovers from a large meal especially during Chinese New Year. It involves stewing mustard greens with tamarind, dried chilies and leftover meals. Sometimes we would do it with fresh meats instead of the leftover meals. It is very yummy.....

I love gai choy and so do my family members. Besides kiam chai boey, I would boil soup with it or just a simple stir fry. We also love gai choy rice or porridge! Here is a simple stir-fry gai choy with fried tofu. Hope you like it.


Ingredients :- 
- 2 leaves of mustard greens (washed and sliced)
- 6 pcs of hard tofu (cut and deep fried. Set aside)
- some shredded carrot
- 1 thumbsized ginger (washed and crushed)
- garlic (washed and finely chopped)

Seasonings : (to taste)

- soy sauce
- salt

cooking oil


Method :

1) Heat oil in a wok. Saute garlic and ginger until aromatic.

2) Stir fry gai choy and shredded carrots.

3) Add fried tofu and stir for a while.

4) Add seasonings. Stir fry and mix well. If too dry, add some water.

5) Dish out and serve.
