But what is good tofu?

There are lots of tofu you can choose from, but the best tofu is the one that taste freshly made and is packed with the essence of soybean flavour. The good news is that you can find a wide variety of soya bean products such as tofu puffs, silken tofu, tofu skin, and more in Malaysia without any problem.

As you may already know, tofu, also known as bean curd, is made of condensed soy milk that is pressed into solid white blocks in a process similar to cheesemaking. There are many benefits of eating tofu, such as:

  • It is an important source of protein for many vegetarians and vegans
  • It may help lower bad LDL cholesterol
  • It may offer relief for certain symptoms of menopause
  • One block of tofu only contains 177 calories
As with all soya food products, tofu improves your overall health and well being, plus it helps avoid obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.

Tofu can be eaten in several ways as it can be added to a wide variety of recipes. Many people in Malaysia eat soya food product instead of eggs for breakfast, lunch or a snack, or even a vegan pot pie for dinner.

For this recipe, we choose Everbest’s Japanese Tofu Puff. Not only is it already pre-cut into convenient pieces, it is also fried at a high temperature which gives it a beautiful golden exterior. The Japanese Tofu Puff are also convenient to use and have a longer shelf life compared to fresh tofu making them the ideal choice for this recipe.
