Black Moss
Nostoc commune

This hair-like ingredient is always served at Chinese New Year. Its name is fat tsai ('hair vegetable') pronounced 'fat choy', as in the Cantonese words which denote prosperity in the new-year greeting 'Kung hei fat (Nostoc commune) This hair-like ingredient is always served at Chinese New Year. Its name is fat tsai ('hair vegetable') pronounced 'fat choy', as in the Cantonese words which denote prosperity in the new-year greeting 'Kung hei fat choy'. The common belief is that it is a seaweed, which is why it is often referred to as black seaweed. I am indebted to Bruce Cost's Asian Ingredients for the surprising revelation that it is not in fact a seaweed, but an algae that grows in the Mongolian desert in water from mountain springs!

It is considered very cooling, and is prized in Chinese medicine for both its cooling and cleansing properties. It is expensive. It needs soaking and rinsing, and is simmered for 10 minutes in a light stock with a little salt, sugar and Chinese wine. Most often encountered in new year specialities or in the vegetarian dish, lo han chai.

Pi-Pa Beancurd

Beancurd shaped like a pipa and then steamed is food for the beautiful.

SILKY soft beancurd steamed witheggwhite and then gently poached again in a chicken broth with veg-etables – that sounds like healthyeating by any count.And if it so happens that this dish wasreputedly the favourite food of one ofChina’s most famous women, then there’sall the more reason to try it.

Xi Shi was one of the historical beau-ties of China and together with WangChaojun, Yang Yuhuan and Diaochan, wasrecognised as one of the Four GreatBeauties. One of Singapore’s newer heart-land housing estates – Simei (FourBeauties) – is named after them.Xi Shi’s homeland was in the kingdomof Yue, in what is now known as theHangzhou-Suzhou district, still famous forbeautiful women and picturesque scenery.Here, the spring waters run clear, cooland sweet and the beancurd made locally is known to be the best in the country.

Legend has it that Xi Shi loved doufu, andwhile she was in training as China’s firstfemale spy, she was pampered with a differ-ent doufu dish every day of the week.Pipa doufu, so called because it is shapedlike a pipa (a Chinese four-stringed lute),was supposedly her favourite.

The original recipe is all but lost, but theliterary records tell us the dish did exist. Soall we do now is apply a little imagination,and create a pretty story for a pretty dish.

The vegetarian option
RECIPE today is easy to adapt to a fully vegetarian dish. All you have to do is to skip the fish paste inthe doufu mixture and if you are vegan, drop the eggwhite.

Substitute that for one teaspoon cornflour added to the mashed doufu. This helps the mixture bind better and not fall apart.

Use a vegetarian stock to substitute for the chickenstock, and a tasty option will be to add a teaspoon of MAGGI® Seasoning – which is vegetarian but fullof flavour.

Or, add a tablespoonful of MAGGI® ShiitakeMushroom Vegetarian Oyster Flavoured Sauce.

Blend the sauce in a little water to dilute it andadd to pan liquid. You will see bits of mushrooms float-ing in the stock.

Add the vegetables as usual, but bea little more careful while you are sliding the doufu patties in.

They will be more fragile. Add more carrot slices – they will sweeten the soup further.

It’s very easy to create carrot “blossoms”. Use a cookie cutter to stamp out shapes on a round of carrot.

Remove the“rind” and carefully cut thin slices off the block. They will brighten up the dish considerably.

Steamed pipa doufu in chicken broth

Ingredients:(Serves 4 or more)

3 teaspoons MAGGI® Concentrated ChickenStock

2. Steam doufu mixture in Chinese spoons forfive minutes. While doufu is steaming, boil 1.5 litre water and add MAGGI®Concentrated Chicken Stock. Add broccoli,mushrooms and carrot slices.
3. Gently slide doufu off the Chinese spoonsand into the stock. Poach pipa doufu for twominutes.
4. Serve with a dipping platter of MAGGI®Shiitake Mushroom Vegetarian Oyster Flavoured Sauce.
