My Yong Tao Foo Sauce
What I did with my leftover fish paste from making the you tiao? Make yong tau foo of course. I only have taufoo poks and red chilies so that would do. But the main purpose of this post is to share with you this yong tau foo sauce. I created this sauce by chance at my friend A's house when she suggested me to make a sauce for her yong tau foo. I have been using Rasa Malaysia soy bean paste sauce all this while but my friend soy bean paste has turned bad so had to throw it away and left me to think of an alternative fast. And thus this sauce was created.
All I used were chopped garlics, Hoisin sauce and honey. And this sauce is delicious and complimented the yong tau foo really well. Just put a little oil (~1 tsp.), add in the chopped garlic (~2Tbsp.) and fry until brown, then add in some water (~1/2 cup), hoisin sauce (~3 Tbsp.) and honey (~2 Tbsp.), stir well to mix and lastly thicken with a cornstarch mixture before adding in the yong tau foo to coat well. I really like this sauce and if you do try it, feedback to me ya!
