When I feel like the day has just let me down, I’m tired and exhausted from the mad KL traffic – I start thinking about making a dish that takes under 10 minutes to prepare. This wonderful Chinese style soup is perfect for my gloomy days. Make sure to use the soft tofu, not the firm one. Its very light yet so warm to have, served with rice in a large soup bowl, curled up on the sofa in my favourite pyjamas.
