Fried Dried Beancurd Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

3 tablespoons

1 teaspoon

1 280 g

1 teaspoon

1 teaspoon

1 handful



3 teaspoons

1 teaspoon

3 teaspoons

2 teaspoons



Medium carrot, peeled and finely shredded

Dried beancurd, cut into 1 x 4 cm sticks


Sesame oil

Chinese fresh celery leaves, chopped


Sweet hoisin sauce



Soy sauce

Method :
  • Heat oil in a wok until hot but not smoking.

  • Add 1 teaspoon salt to the hot oil, then stir in the dried beancurd sticks. Stir fry continuously on medium heat, until the beancurd starts to crinkle and get a bit crispy. This process usually takes about 10 - 15 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon and set aside on a plate.

  • In the remaining oil, add the carrot, stir fry 30 seconds, then add the sauce ingredients and cook another minute before returning the fried beancurd sticks to the pan.

  • Stir fry 1 minutes, ensuring that beancurd sticks are coated in the sauce, then add vinegar and    stir-fry 30 seconds more.

  • Turn off the heat, add sesame oil, and toss to combine.

  • Transfer to a serving plate, garnish evenly with the chopped celery leaf, and serve.
