Traditional Hakka Yong Tau Foo 祖传客家酿豆腐

This Hakka Yong Tau Foo (YTF) recipe was my granny’s who migrated from China to Singapore many many years ago. She was from Mei Xian 梅县, a county located in northeastern of Guangdong. My granny used to cook this dish for us without fail every time we go to her place for Lunar New Year reunion dinner and I used to dislike it a lot. But now that I’m all grown up and she is no longer with us, I’m starting to appreciate and even crave for her YTF every now and then.

Refer to the ingredient list below and watch our step-by-step  video on YouTube for your easy reference.
