Yong Tau Foo is one of the best Malaysian foods that is loved by all Malaysians!

You can find Yong Tau Foo restaurants easily across Malaysia at Yong Tau Foo restaurants, hawker centres and even roadside stalls!

But, do you know that it is not difficult to make at home too?

Well, today I am going to show you how to make Yong Tau Foo.

Yong Tau Foo is a dish made by stuffing fish paste (main ingredient) in tofu, okra, bitter gourd, chilli peppers, eggplants, and bean curd skin.

The fish paste is made from Spanish Mackerel fish meat OR the combination of mackerel fish meat and surimi.

Ingredients list:

Filling (fish paste):

  • Spanish Mackerel fish meat/Surimi
  • corn starch
  • fish sauce
  • salt
  • sugar

Gravy or Soup:

  • chicken broth
  • dried anchovies
  • salt
  • sugar

Tofu and Vegetables:

  • white tofu
  • fried tofu puffs
  • butter gourd
  • eggplant
  • okra
  • red chilli pepper

Hoisin sauce:

  • hoisin sauce paste
  • water

Just stuff the filling into vegetables or tofu, and then boil or fry it and it is ready to eat.

It is healthy and delicious!

The dish has a soup and dry version, both are nice, the soup usually comes with thick gravy and the fried version is crispy and crunchy.

To eat, just take the Yong Tau Foo and dip it into hoisin or chilli sauce before putting it into your mouth!

Please note that the quality of fish meat is important as fish meat comes in different grades. To make a great Yong Tau Foo, you will need to use fresh and high-quality fish meat.
