Steamed Stuffed Tofu

I like this dish steamed, deep fried, put in simple chicken soup
Nice and tasty, healthy too (not so when it's deep fried LOL)

Recipe is from Lidia's site

What you need:

8 blocks of firm tofu, halved each, scoop out the middle part

For filling:
200g minced chicken
12 pcs medium size prawns, peeled and cleaned
4 cloves of garlic
3 tbsp fish sauce
2 tbsp oyster sauce
3 tbsp cornflour
1 egg
2 stalks spring onions, chopped
sugar, pepper
  1. Using food processor, chop shrimp and garlic until smooth
  2. Place it in a mixing bowl. Add fish and oyster sauce, egg, pepper and sugar. Mix well
  3. Add spring onion and corn flour and mix it well
  4. Take a spoon of it and stuff into the hole of tofu one by one until all is done
  5. Arrange on steaming plate, steam for 30 minutes over high heat
  6. Serve warm with soya sauce mixed with bird's eye chilli
I didn't mix the leftover tofu with the filling, instead I mixed with the remaining filling and shaped into balls amd steam together with the stuffed tofu

I also followed the original recipe, I deep fried some of the stuffed tofu
There is no need to steam first in this case

For coating:

3 tbsp rice flour
2 tbsp corn flour
1 egg
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp garlic and seasoning
  1. Mix all ingredients above for dipping before frying
  2. Dip each tofu and deep fry til golden brown
Nice afternoon snack with some bird's eye chillies :)
