SWEET AND SOUR FRESH TOFU SKIN [TAUPAU]

If soya products are your favourite cooking ingredient, then do take a look at the list of recipes in my blog which I have labelled 'Soya'.   As I have mentioned repeatedly, I love soya products from dry to fresh and frozen ones [soft and firm beancurd, tofu puffs, beancurd skin, frozen tofu skin etc].
Fresh tofu skin [taupau] is one of them.  It can be cooked with various sauces and the end result is never disappointing so long as they are fried until golden brown and firm.  They can be braised with other ingredients and sauces.  They are 'Awesome'.

This is is basically the same as some of my previous recipes on fresh soya skin but I have added other ingredients like capsicum, onions and tomatoes into the sauce. It's tasty and nice.  A healthy dish suitable for the old and young.

Ingredients
[serves 3]
6 pieces of fresh soya skin - pan fried until golden brown [keep whole or cut into halve]
1 tomato - diced
1 small green capsicum - diced
1 onion - peeled and diced
1 red chilli - seeded and diced
some toasted white sesame seeds for garnish
Seasoning Sauce
2 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tbsp each light soya sauce, plum sauce, black vinegar and wine
¼ tsp sugar
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp cornstarch + 1 tbsp water


  1. In a non stick wok, pan fry tofu skin until golden brown and crispy at the edges.  Dish up.
  2. Remove excess oil, using the same wok, put in all the diced ingredients.  Stir fry to mix well.
  3. Pour in the sauce, add in water and fried tofu skin.
  4. Bring to boil, taste to adjust seasoning.  Sprinkle some toasted white sesame seeds.
  5. Dish up to serve immediately.

Hi Phong Hong, I find soya products a good substitute for meat when fried and they can be cooked in various flavours. Awesome.

I love the meaty texture of taupau and you can cook it any way you like. Unfortunately it is quite expensive here in Melbourne, about $5+ each pack.

Hi Veronica, in Penang, I paid RM3.00 per pack of 10 pieces that comes in round or rectangle shapes. It is a great food ingredient. Fully agree that it can be cooked any way so long as it is fried. I was told, some people use it to cook 'tong sui', a substitute for dried beancurd sheet.
