Hum Choy Tofu Soup

Posted by mamabok | Chinese,Cooking,Food From Home | Saturday 28 February 2009 1:47 am




I made hum choy tofu soup since i had gotten hold of some hum choy last week.  Nope.. we donch have this in our local grocery store.. and like i said before.. i need to drive 4hrs to Halifax to get this.. and another 4hrs home.  So you can imagine.. how i feel each time.. i’m able to get some chinese food.  Thanks to our awesome customer/friend, Paul .. who was up in Halifax . .and picked these up for me.    Can’t ask for a customer/friend, because his wife .. would do the same for me.. if she was up in Halifax. This time.. i had forgotten to put in some ginger to my hum choy soup.  The next time.. i will try to remember.  My mom used to say that by putting a piece of ginger in it.. it’s not too cooling.  My brat loves it.. i let her have rice with soup.. and some chicken pieces.  As usual, i used the slow cooker to do the cooking.

    lol me too i used to eat rice with soup when i was little. maybe like 2-3 years ago i stopped doing that because i no longer like “lo for tong”

    right now what i love the most is “gwun tong” which only takes less than 45 minz to boil up. add fish or some chicken meat or pork, then add some vegetables(such as carrots), or century egg “pey don” and it’s very good.

    Do you like “gwun tong” ?

    Try not to use slow cooker, soup taste better using traditional way. Boil for 3 hours.

    Free Thinker:

    Ham Choi Tau Fu is one of the delicacies of the Cantonese Community in Malaysia.It is considered one of the simple dishes among the poor folks. It is not an expensive dish taken in the restaurant. Ham Choi Tauh Fu can be considered one of the three{3}main dishes of a simple chinese food. The other two{2} is a fish/meat and a veggie. Ham Choi Tau Fu is still a very popular dish{soup}in my little town, Kuala Terengganu, West Malaysia.

    it’s not hard to make hum choy! my mom’s favorite. the process is very simple. salt and mustard greens. tightly stuffed and sealed…wait for about 2 months or until the color turn to a faded green….

    that’s pretty much it!

    i will try to make that next time…never tried the hum choy tofu soup before….
