    1. First, have ready all the ingredients for this dish.
    2. Soak the dried sweet bean curd sheets in water, until slightly soft.
    3. Using a pair of scissors or knife, cut the dried sweet bean curd sheets into thick strips and set aside.
    4. Then wash and soak (rehydrate) dried shiitake mushroom in cold water, covered, for 1 – 2 hours or overnight till soft. Alternatively, place the mushrooms in a heatproof bowl and soaked in hot or boiling water for at least 20 minutes until the caps are tender.
    5. When the mushrooms have softened, strain and retain 1/4 cup of the mushroom fluid for use later.
    6. Then trim off mushroom stems, squeeze out excess water.
    7. Rinse and shake dry the coriander leaves. Then using a sharp knife, cut into 2 inch strips, starting from the leaves to the stems. And we’re ready to fry the mushrooms.
    8. To stir fry the mushrooms, first heat up 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a wok.
    9. Add in the shiitake mushrooms and stir fry over medium heat until fragrant and caps are fully infused with the sesame oil, about 5 minutes.
    10. Dish up and set aside the mushrooms.
    11. In the same wok, heat up another tablespoon of sesame oil.
    12. Add in the dried sweet beancurd strips and stir fry the beancurd in the oil until slightly browned, about 3 minutes.
    13. Dish up and set aside the fried sweet dried beancurd strips.
    14. Then add in fermented bean paste and stir fry for about 1 minute.
    15. Quickly add the sesame oil infused fried shiitake mushrooms. Fry to make sure the mushrooms are coated with the bean paste.
    16. Then add in sugar and continue to stir fry for another 1 to 2 minutes.
    17. Add a dash of ground white pepper.
    18. Then pour in retained mushroom fluid.
    19. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are tender, fully flavoured and the fluid has dried up.
    20. Next, add the fried sweet beancurd strips.
    21. Lightly toss to mix the sweet beancurd with the flavoured shiitake mushrooms.
    22. Lastly, toss in the cut coriander leaves.
    23. Lightly mixed to fully combine the coriander leaves with the mushrooms and sweet beancurd. And we’re done!
    24. Serve this flavourful mushroom dish hot with steamed white rice. And as always, ENJOY!
    Recipe Notes

    It is best to soak the mushrooms in lots of cold water, covered, for 1 – 2 hours or overnight. Soaking in hot water takes less time, but this causes the mushrooms to lose much of their characteristic fragrance.

    Dried mushrooms can keep for many years if stored in a dark and dry place.
