Bean Curd Pudding recipe “Tau Foo Far”

25 Jun

Hello!  Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  We have been busy setting up the new shop.  Thank you everyone for writing to us and asking us where the shop is.  We are almost ready and will open in early to mid July.  The shop is located at 1025 Whitehorse Road, Box Hill.  So when you are around, drop by.   Oh! What you can get from our shop?  …well, Nyonya food, frozen and dry items from Malaysia eg. roti chanai, grated yam beans, curry paste etc.    Anyway, we will inform everyone the actual date of the opening.

Without further ado, here’s everyone favorite dessert “Tau Foo Far”.  You probably “slurp” this when you’re having yum cha, right?  But why not make it at home.  Here’s the recipe after the cut:

Bean Curd Pudding “Tau Foo Far”


1 litre soya milk
20 gm gelatine (dissolve with 100 ml of warm water)

Sugar Syrup
1½ cups Sugar
Slices of ginger
3 Pandan (optional)
500 ml Water

Boil the above ingredients until the sugar dissolves. Cool the syrup.


Add the dissolved gelatine into a container or stockpot. In the meantime, bring the soya milk into a boil and pour it into the gelatine. Stir till the gelatine melts into the hot soya milk. Cool it to room temperature and leave the mixture in the fridge to set.

The bean curd pudding can be served cold with sugar syrup. To serve hot, microwave the pudding for 20 to 30 seconds.

Oh golly! Who knew this dessert was so simple? I’ll definitely have to try to make it, as I don’t think I’ve seen it available at any yum cha place here in Canberra. *shakes fist at sky*

I tried the recipe but the texture wasn’t quite like what we get in yum cha places.
Do you use this recipe at your shop?
I visited your shop on Friday and had the nasi lemak in banana leaf. It was delicious!
