These crispy fried stuffed taufu puff is quite a common dish at ‘Chu Char’ stalls.  If you like to prepare these for your loved ones at home, not to worry, it is very easy. Not complicated as I thought when I first saw the recipe. I’m sharing this simple, easy recipe here with you.
Do give this a try, they are crispy on the outside which is quite tasteless but the flavour comes from the filling which is a combination of prawns, crabmeat and meat.
Dip in any of your favourite chilli sauce , it is awesome and quite addictive, I am sure you wouldn’t stop at one.
BTW, if you don’t have crab meat, just prawn flesh with pork or chicken, it is still okay.
Recipe adapted from my selected cookbook for Cookbook Countdown Event #3] - Home Cooking Magazine [January 2001] with modifications 

Ingredients For Filling
[makes 20 pieces]
100 gm chicken fillet - minced
100 gm prawn flesh - minced
100 gm crab meat – minced
1 Bombay onion – peeled and finely chopped
1 red chilli – seeded and chopped
1 small egg
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp sesame seed oil
2 tbsp cornstarch
Other Ingredients
20 fluffy fried taufu puffs – best to use those which are hollow inside
Enough oil for deep frying
  1. Cut a slit on one edge of the taufu puff and carefully turn it inside out to prevent it from breaking into two.
  2. Combine all the filling ingredients. Mix well until sticky.
  3. Stuff filling inside each taufu puff and leave aside in the fridge until ready to cook.
  4. Heat oil over medium heat, deep fry taufu puffs in batches till golden and crispy.

Kimmy, I have tried something like this before and I loved it! Now I feel like making these fried taufu puffs this weekend even though I dread the deep frying part.

Hi Phong Hong, make sure to get the fluffy type [hollow inside] of taufu pok, can stuff more filling in it. Not to worry, the frying is very quick and you can do it in batches.
