I like to buy the stuffed tofu puffs from my neighbourhood wet market which are freshly made everyday and I’d cook them like how I would a soupy yong tau foo. In every puff, there would always be crunchy bits of prawns besides the well seasoned minced pork. This time, I decided to make them myself (means it’s MSG free!) and it’s really not that difficult to do it. I even made a savoury sauce using oyster sauce to go with the puffs which I chose to steam rather than boil as I didn’t want the filling to drop out of the pocket. A healthy dish that’s wholesome and delicious. Enjoy this Stuffed Tofu Puffs Recipe! 🙂

Hi, these look great. I have recently rediscovered tofu so am now looking for new recipes to try out. Will put this one on my list to make 🙂
I love cooking and eating tofu 🙂 I have a few more tofu recipes that you may be interested so feel free to check them out when you’re free 🙂
I am vegetarian and this is a really good one and I am going to make this over the weekend
Hi Chelvi, this recipe isn’t vegetarian as meat is used but I have a suggestion to replace the meat filling with firm beancurd, fermented beancurd (tempeh) and/or assorted mushrooms. Oooh, now this gives me an idea to remake it into a vegetarian dish 🙂
It’s a pity I can’t find tofu puffs in Toulon (south of France). I’ll change them for vol-au-vent!
Sounds like a great idea! 😉
