Claypot Simmered Tofu with Prawn


250 g of soft tofu (cut into large cubes)
1/2 carrot, sliced
2/3 cup of button mushroom (fresh/canned)
6 grey prawns, devined
1 tbs of fried shallot
1 tbs of chopped chinese celery
4 garlic cloves (smashed)
1 tbs of fish sauce
1/2 tsp of seasoning
1/2 cup of water
cornstarch mixed with water for thickening

With 3 tbs of oil, fry smashed garlic till golden in a non-stick pan. Set aside garlic. Use the remaining oil to fry the tofu cubes until slightly golden. Set aside. Still using the same oil, stir fry carrot and mushroom. Put garlic, tofu, and vegetable inside the claypot together with 1/2 cup of water. Add salt, pepper, fish sauce and seasoning. Simmer until water 1/4 less. Add in prawns, making sure it's just cooked, but not overcooked. Stir in cornstarch. Dress it up with chopped chinese celery and fried shallots.
