Deep Fried Bean Curd With Prawn & Chicken Paste

What are the ingredients you normally used in stuffed bean curd puffs? Mine should be fish paste stuffing in 'Hakka' style. Besides of that, I have something here which is easier....no fish paste is needed. And is perfect for snack or as well as side dish!

Here's the recipe.

Ingredients :

100gm prawns, roughly chopped
200gm minced chicken thigh meat
1 large onion, diced finely
100gm jicama/water chestnuts, diced finely
salt & pepper to taste
2 tspn beaten egg
2 tspn sesame oil
2 tspn corn flour
handful of cilantro/spring onion, chopped
10 bean curd puffs, halved

Method :

- combine prawns, chicken, onion, jicama, egg, sesame oil, cornflour, salt & pepper and cilantro. stir to mix well.
- push the halved bean curd puff inside out.


- stuff in the filling and then steam for 5 mins.
- next, deep fry the stuffed bean curd untill golden brown.

Finally, serve deep fried stuffed bean curd puffs with chili sauce or sweet plum sauce. The bean curd puff skin should be nice and crispy while the fillings is hot! You can actually smell the strong flavour of cilantro & spring onion when taking the bite..... & a little crunchy & juicy.....Whatever so, just enjoy!

I have never made a stuffed bean curd puff in my life, Kristy, in fact, didn't even know what it was! This is why I LOVE your blog. I learn so much and you are forcing me out of my comfort zone and into learning about and trying new things!

I love bean curb. Be it plain in soup or stir fry with veggi.
Your stuffed version looks awesome!

Lyndsey said...

These look amazing. I've been wanting to get the tofu puffs, but didn't want to use them in a dish where they just get soggy. I like that they are crispy on the outside and oh-so-good on the inside! I'll just have to adjust the ingredients, because I don't eat shrimps or prawns. Great post Kristy! Cheers!

Jeannie said...

Did you mean can put sengkuang in? Jicama is sengkuang.
Cheaper than water chestnuts :)
