Steamed Tofu with Minced Pork & Salted Fish

I'm always on the look out for tofu recipes especially steamed tofu . As I'm always topping it with minced pork and minced prawn , though it's really quiet good , sometimes it gets old , the same way over and over . So , I was browsing this free Chinese daily ( uhmm just checking out the some photos as I don't read Chinese heh! ) I saw this bilingual recipe . The first time I made it , I'm not really satisfied , too much sauce that the tofu's swimming in it . So this time , I still used all ingredient but added some minced ginger and some chopped spring onion , reduced all ingredients especially the pork from that too much 200 grams to more or less 40 grams ( not sure though 'coz I just wing it ,again :D ) . Recipe from the book Authentic Homestyle Cuisine by K.S Lee

1 T chopped salted fish ( fried )
200 grams minced pork
1 pack beancurd ( for steaming ) - I used Pak Fook brand
2 dried mushroom , soaked and diced
2  ( padi ) chillies , diced
1/2 T minced garlic

Seasoning :

1 T each of oyster sauce & chilli sauce
1/2 T sugar
1 1/2 tsps chicken powder
1/4 tsp each of salt & white pepper powder

1 T flour or cornstarch & 1/2 cup water mix together .

* Steam beancurd for 8 minutes . Pour the water out , keep warm .
* Heat some oil , fry pork , chillies and garlic until fragrant .
* Add mushrooms and salted fish . Add seasoning and fry for a while .
* Add starch mixture , cook over medium heat till gravy thickened . Pour sauce over beancurd . Serve hot.
