FRIED TAUPAU IN SWEET SOUR SAUCE

This recipe is quite similar to my earlier post on Braised Taupau with Fish Paste.  The paste mixture is the same while the flavour is different.  Here, I used the round shape fresh tofu skin and the sauce is sweet and sour.
Similarly, preparing the paste needs some effort but it is worth doing it as you can prepare 2 dishes with different flavours with similar ingredients.  

Ingredients for Paste
100 gm fish paste
50 gm prawn paste
50 gm minced meat
some chopped spring onions
Seasoning [mixed together]
1 tsp salt 
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp sesame seed oil
2 tbsp cold water1 tbsp cornstarch
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine fish paste, prawn paste and minced meat with seasoning.
  2. Stir in a one direction into a sticky paste.  Add in the spring onions and mix well.  Shape into ball, place in a container and chill for at least 30 minutes or until required.
Other Ingredients
10 pieces round fresh soya skin [tau pau] - defrost
some chopped garlic, red chilli and spring onions
Seasoning
3 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp vinegar
2-3 tbsp water
  1. Separate the fresh tofu skin and press out excess water.
  2. Spread some prepared paste on a piece of taupau.  Press lightly and set aside.  Finish doing the same for the rest.  
  3. Heat up a non stick pan with enough oil to pan fry or deep fry the tofu skin until golden brown.  Push aside.
  4. Remove excess oil if any from wok, saute garlic until aromatic.    Add in fried tofu skin and seasoning sauce, bring to a quick boil. 
  5. Dish up and garnish with chopped spring onion.  Serve immediately.
