Braised Mixed Tofu & Mushroom

This is our simple lunch today! One and only dish with along a bowl of warm rice :D A simple and healthy dish which packed with protein but low in fats & calories! 

These are a few varieties of tofu I've chosen for this dish to make it looks more interesting. You can replaced with normal plain firm tofu if they are not readily available :D
