Pan Fried Young Tofu

You might think that this is just normal tofu which people sell in the market. I can guarantee that this is one of the greatest vegetarian dishes that you could ever try. It takes time to make this tofu but it's worth it for special occasions. Check out the following recipe.

Rice powder : 2 bowls
Green bean :300gr
Corn flour:1 bowl
Tofu :5 pieces
Black mushroom :300gr
Onion : 2
Water :20 bowls
Oyster sauce, soya sauce, Knorr powder, pepper, oil.

How to make:
Black mushroom, onion: chopped finely
Green bean : cooked then ground.
Put all together and mix up, cook until all the moisture has almost evaporated. Scoop out into a tray, divide them into small square pieces and store in the freezer. Take them out and deep fry, at first over a low heat after covering them lightly in flour. Turn the heat up slowly once they are browned slightly. Must be eaten hot and crispy with soya sauce(chili).

This is a really special vegetarian dish that everyone loves at Wild Rice, especially foreigners.

Yum yum tofu! I love tofu and other soy products. Will try this soon. Right now, I am craving for tofu chips, it's a good alternative to potato chips. Hope all is well with you in Hanoi. I so miss Vietnam!

Vagabonder said...

hmm, have never tried out this tofu in VN, and it's not made from soja beans?

I will try to make this tofu dish,one small question, when you say "bowl', did you mean "bowl" that we use to eat rice or it is "cup" measuring? Thanks

back home in singapore...the yong taufu meal is an assortment of mainly vegetables (cooked or uncooked) such as bittergourd (sliced), brinjal (sliced) with taufu as well etc..stuffed with minced fish meat...the dish is eaten dry or with a yellow bean stock soup..and with noodle added in..voila! a complete meal!love it!


Aha! another recipe. Think I'll have to open a folder for the recipes you've been sharing.

The food looks so good, but i dont think, we will get tofu and these special ingredients in Kerala..Thanks for sharing

Nabeel said...

i think your food blog is really great .. you find so many types of dishes here

Van Cong Tu said...

This is one of the most special dishes in my restaurant and I think not many places have this dish.
Thao, a normal bowl for eating.
Madelyn, soya sauce or fish sauce are both fine.
Morningdew, Hoi An is such a beautiful city but dont forget Nha Trang, even better!!!

slurp! said...

the name sounds like something different we have in singapore. well we called it Yong Tau Fu, Tau Fu = Tofu. it's basically, fish paste with tofu, chilli, bitter gourd etc etc

Young Tofu looks yummy as well, i think it will taste great with sweet sauce as dipping as well :)

Dear God, my foodie blog-friend Lisa and I are debating whether the green bean are those small green bean the Chinese (maybe also other Asians) often use in sweet soups in summer, they are supposed to have a cooling effect, as opposed to red beans.

Because I first read it as "green peas"...

Space babe said...

Dear God, unfortunately I only speak three languages, but I can almost read French.

Van Cong Tu said...

Space babe, Thansk for your comment
