I used to make lor bak with my mum especially when we are having big feast. Lor bak is actually marinated minced pork together with all sorts of vegetables, roll in beancurd sheet and then deep fried. Thanks to Butter.Flour and Me for her tofu rolls recipe. She inspired me to make this vegetarian tofu rolls.
These tofu rolls is soft inside with lightly crispy outside. All the root vegetables turn soft except water chestnut. It gives little crunch texture to these rolls.
|This is how I dice the chestnut. Put cut water chestnut into plastic bag. Then disintegrate the water chestnuts with the back
of a knife or cleaver|
|These are the ingredients for filling.|
|This mixed filling is ready to be rolled.|
|This is how I wrap with beancurd sheet.|
Reference from Butter.Flour and Me
200g soft tofu (can replace with 2 pieces of firm tofu, 豆干),mashed
200g yam, shredded
200g jicama (sengkuang), shredded
60g carrot, shredded
5 pieces water chestnut, peeled and diced
½ stick of celery, finely diced
10 tablespoons instant oatmeal
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 piece dry beancurd sheet (tofu skin) for wrapping
*cut into triangle shape or any shape that you prefer
Oil, for deep-frying
1. Add all the filling and seasoning into a mixing bowl. Mix to combine.
2. Wrap the filling with beancurd sheet. Repeat till all finish.
3. Heat enough cooking oil in a wok. When the oil is fully heated, turn the heat to medium. Gently drop in tofu rolls. Deep frying the rolls till turn golden brown. Remove and place on kitchen towel to absorb excess oil. Serve with your favourite dipping sauce!
~These tofu rolls can be kept well in freezer. For easy removing, keep the rolls on plastic wrap without touching each other. When the time to consume, take out the frozen roll and pan fry (without adding any oil) on non-stick pan at low heat till the filling heat through and the tofu skin is crisp.
