You can also line a 6" square tray with plastic sheet. Once cool, can cut into cubes for deep frying coated with cornflour.

7. Add in the mixed seasonings and bring to a boil.
8. Add in the potato starch mixture to thicken the sauce. Switch off the fire. Can also use corn flour to make the starch mixture.
9. Plating the broccoli, prawns onto the plate of tofu. Spoon the mushroom and sauce over them. Serve while hot.
