Stuffed Tofu @ Bean Curds

a.k.a "tauhu sumbat" ...I've always love it..the veggie ones that is..and I prefer it with peanut sauce to chili sauce.


On Saturday after the Putrajaya trip, whilst doing grocery shopping I remembered the stuffed tofu that we had at I.A's house during our trip and decided to make it.


We had this at I.A's house last year :-)


errr...I have the tendency of trying out recipes without referring to the notes, most of the time I'd try to recall from memory..of what I've watched or seen. Sometimes it would turn up right, sometimes it's not..,


like the recent times when I tried making scones and bread..they turned out hard like bricks (not that hard, a bit softer..hahaha.)


...and I digressed from tofu.. :-)


Anyway, I attempted making the stuffed tofu for that Saturday night:



Tofu stuffed with mixture of fish fillet etc, ready to be steamed.



After 10 minutes in the steamer



Fried ~ coated with egg and flour.



Thanks I.A for introducing this :-)




That batch was gone in a short while..made a second batch (slightly more) on Sunday evening and some are kept in the freezer...hehe..

Benefits of tofu (info found online) :


Tofu

~ low in fat, calories, cholesterol..and an excellent source of high quality protein from non-meat foods.


~ rich in B-vitamins and contains a lot of calcium. Calcium helps in the prevention of osteoporosis - thinning of bone tissue and loss of bone density.


~ friendly to the digestive system as it is easy to digest due to the removal of soybean's fiber during the manufacturing process.


~ rich in isoflavones. Isoflavones reduces risk osteoporosis, breast and prostate cancers.


Most soy-foods, including tofu, helps in the reduction of cholesterol in our body. It helps maintain the level of good HDL cholesterol by lowering the levels of bad LDL cholesterol.

wow... nice...

i amsterdam said...

Kerepot sebab it was very soft tofu berbanding tofu M'sia... and steam for 5 minutes is enough.. and tak steam pun tak pe.

I steamed it because I did not want to fry for a long time. :D

tiefazatie said...

Cheqna said...

Thomas,

Yes, tasty indeed, loved it. :-)

Cheqna said...

Cheqna said...

I.A dear,

Thank u. I steamed it longer cos using microwave, tak panaskan dulu the water, hehe..

btw, 1st batch i added mint leaves, 2nd batch i added spring onion, both i rasa ok, and being someone yg suka pedas, sprinkled some chilli powder too, hehe.
