Fried Savoury Eggy Shrimp Tofu Cake

Tofu is made by coagulating soy milk and pressing the resulting curds. Tofu is low in calories, contains beneficial amounts of iron and has no saturated fat or cholesterol.Tofu is relatively high in protein and as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. I must buy tofu whenever I shop at Asian supermarket. Luckily my daughter love tofu,so I keep encourage her to have it once a week. This time I twist abit the soft tofu with eggs and shrimp mixture before pan-fried.Later I drizzled with some oyster sauce...It's really taste fantastic!!
