Stuffed Crispy Tofu/Tauhu Sumbat

Tauhu sumbat -a nutritious finger food snack, are pockets of fried tofu stuffed with vegetables You get both protein and vegetables in one serving. When drenched with a spicy peanut sauce, they are extra tasty but they are just as good if served with any chilly sauce. There are many types of tauhu/tofu that you can use for this dish and of course, it has to be the fried ones, but i use the 'tauhu/tofu pok' which are very crispy when they are fried again before filling.


Several pieces of semi-hard tauhu/tofu or tauhu/tofu pok
1/2 cucumber, cut into fine thin strips
1 cup beansprouts, scalded lightly

Enough oil to deep-fry tauhu/tofu

Sauce(follow the Satay Sauce) or

1 tbsp thick tamarind juice
1/4 - 1/2 cup water
2 tbsp oil

Combine the following:

300g groundnuts, toasted and pounded coarsely
3 to 4 red chilli, seeded and pounded
3 shallots, pounded
1 clove garlic, pounded
1/2 tsp belacan granules

2 tsp brown sugar
Pinch of salt, or to taste


For tauhu/tofu pieces, cut diagonally into halves. Sprinkle a little salt. Pat dry with paper kitchen towels, then deep-fry in hot oil until crispy on the outside. Cut a slit in the tauhu and pry open slightly. Stuff with a little bit of each vegetable into the opening.

For Tauhu/Tofu Pok, make a slit and then either deep fry or toast in the oven before stuffing.

For the sauce:

Heat two tablespoons oil in a wok and saute the combined pounded ingredients until fragrant. Add tamarind juice, water and seasoning. Bring to a simmering boil until sauce turns thick. Dish out and serve with the tauhu sumbat

Mmm, I love this stuff. We usually eat it with rojak sauce though, but it must be as yummy with peanut sauce.
