Minced meat in black bean sauce

I love simple dishes that I can prepare in less than 15 mins and this is one of them.  My kids are still not used to the black bean sauce but I personally like this.  This is great to eat with either plain rice porridge or hot steaming rice.  It is high in protein because it has minced meat and tofu.  

What you need:
250-300g minced chicken
1 tube egg tofu, drained
1 medium size red chilli, chopped (if you want more heat, add 1 or 2 chilli padi)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 Tbsp black bean sauce (bottled which you can purchase from supermarket)
a bunch of green onions/scallion and chinese celery, chopped
a dash of sesame oil
1 tsp cornflour
1 Tbsp oil

What you do:
1. Marinade meat with salt, pepper, sesame oil and cornflour, put it aside
2. Heat wok with oil, stir fry garlic, onion, chilli and black bean sauce 
3. Once it simmers, add minced meat and stir fry till meat is cooked
4. Add tofu and break it into small pieces and mix everything together
5. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes and add salt or light soya sauce if needed
6. Add the chopped scallions and chinese celery, give it a good stir and turn fire off
7. Serve it with steamed rice or rice porridge
