These beancurd skin rolls can be served fried or braised. Either way, it is as tasty.
The braising sauce is tasty. The rolls are flavourful on its own and best serve immediately after frying.  The braised one is good with rice as the sauce tasted just perfect [not too salty but tasty].  It's delicious.

Hi Soke Hah, Veronica and Phong Hong, looks like four of us are lovers for tou bao [fresh bean curd skin]. I like to eat them whichever way they are cooked. Agree with Veronica it is a versatile [main or supplementary] ingredient in various dishes.
