Dou Hua - Tau Foo Fah - Tau Huay - Soya bean curd - 豆腐花

Yeah, I did it ! I made my every first tau foo fah. For more information , click here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douhua . I used chow time recipes. Well, it doesn't as good as we bought but happy that i can make it by myself and will try other methods such likes using pectin or gelatine or even agar-agar.

Source: Chow Time


1 liter soy bean milk
1.5 tsp gypsum powder
1.5 tsp cornstarch
1 tbsp hot water


1. Boil the soy bean milk.
2. Dissolved the gypsum powder with hot water and then adding cornstarch and mix well, set aside.
3. When the soy bean milk is boiled, remove from heat immediately. Pour the gypsum-cornstarch mixture into a pan (stir well before pour it), the strain in the hot boiled soy bean milk to the pan. Cover lid and leave it for an hour. Do not touch or move it! Serve hot or cold with some syrup.


1. Don't move ot touch the tofufah or it may be failed.
2. Ginger Syrup : Boiled 1 cup sugar with 1/2 cup water with some ginger slices till dissolved and a bit syrup alike.
