Herbal Tau Pau (BeanCurd Roll)

This is a beautiful dish and we all love tau pau. Tau Pau or Beancurd Roll is very nutritious and I have this newly created simple recipe to go with steamed rice. The gravy are made up of boiled dongqui, red dates, dried longan, wolfberries and chinese mushroom. Wow, the extracts are very aromatic especially the dongqui (tongkui). Dongqui is a type of roots which is sweet and pungent and it helps in revitalising energy in our body, the chinese called it "blood tonic".
