Vegetarian Taugeh Puffs

Besides curry puff, my mom also make these taugeh ( beansprouts ) puffs for us as a snack. This is accompanied by an awesome chilli sauce she would pound with a mortar and pestle. We cannot find this snack being sold anywhere these days. Use a spoon  and make a hole in the middle of the puff, spoon in some chilli and enjoy.

Vegetarian Taugeh Puffs ( Makes 8 )

Ingredients for the skin.

175gms plain flour
50ml oil
60 ml water ( add in 1|8 tsp salt to dissolved)

Ingredients for the filling:

400 gms taugeh (washed and drained)

1 sprig spring onions ( cut into sections)
1|2 tsp salt to taste


Sift Flour into a bowl and add in the oil and mix till combine.
Add in the water little by little to in knead into a smooth dough.

  1. I'm trying to make this today and having difficulty kneading the dough, there seems to be too much oil, is 70 ml oil in the dough the right measurement? Thanks.

  2. Sorry Elajr. Typo mistake should be 150 gms of flour. Thanks for the feedback.
