Pig Tail, Seaweed & Tofu Soup 猪尾海带豆腐汤

Pig Tail, Seaweed & Tofu Soup 猪尾海带豆腐汤

A traditional soup handed down from my father-in-law



Pig tail and soaked seaweed

Soft tofu

Anchovies or ikan bilis as it is known locally in Malay


1 pig tail about 500g ( cut into 2 inches sections )
15g dried seaweed ( soak in water, clean and cut into strips )
1 piece soft tofu ( cut into chunky pieces )
10g anchovies a.k.a ikan bilis ( wash )
2.5 litres water
1 tsp salt, or to taste


1.  Pour the 2.5 litres of water into a large pot. 
2.  Add in the cut pig tail pieces, seaweed, tofu and anchovies
3.  Use slow fire to boil till the pig tail is soft and about 1.5 litres of soup is left
4.  Add in salt to taste

Seaweed is believed to be a rich source of iodine
