·          2 pieces firm tofu 

·          200 grams of lean pork mince 

·          1/4 piece of carrot      

·          An equal amount of spring onions  

·          An equal amount of oyster mushroom or any other type of mushrooms  

·          An equal amount of dried prawns      

·          1 large egg  

·          2 cloves of garlic      

·          3 tablespoons of corn flour 

·          Oil for deep frying 





·          1 teaspoon of worcestershire sauce 

·          1 teaspoon of light soya sauce 

·          2 teaspoons of oyster sauce  

·          1/4 teaspoon of white pepper powder 

·          1/4 teaspoon of black pepper powder 


Preparation Method 


In a mixing bowl, blend and mash up the tofu, pork, carrot, spring onions, mushrooms, dried prawns, garlic, corn flour and seasoning and mix properly in one circular motion. Set aside for 30 minutes. 


Place mixture in a stainless steel bowl or deep plate and heavy steam it for 10 minutes. The mixture, particularly the meat, should be at least 70% cooked right after steaming. Remove from steam and position bowl over cold water.  


When mixture has adequately cooled down, break the egg onto mixture and stir it in one circular motion till egg is evenly distributed. Add some corn flour if blend is runny. 


Warm oil in wok for deep frying. To fry, scoop one heaped tablespoon of concoction and using another spoon held on another hand, slide the blend into the oil. Fry till patty becomes golden brown. Place fried patties on absorbent kitchen napkins to absorb unwanted oil earlier to serving.
