Stuffed Tofu in Yummy Peanut Sauce

 Image Hosted by

The recipe has been modified from various different sources, the stuffing is almost similar to the chinese spring rolls. Steamed sweet potato is added to the peanut sauce to thickens and give a not-so-skippy’ish flavour to the sauce. Which might have been the reason why my husband was always a bit hesitant trying savouries doused in peanut sauce. He probably thinks peanuts would only go in sandwiches.

  (or any beancurd that you can make a pocket)
