Recipe • 8-Treasure Bag with Dancing Chef™ Chicken Rice Sauce

Hi there! Happy 2020! (。・ω・。)ノ♡

This year’s Chinese New Year is merely a month after Christmas!
I don’t know if I’ll have time to bake any CNY goodies but let’s start with an auspicious looking dish that can be served during reunion meal!

8-Treasure Bag with Dancing Chef’s Chicken Rice Sauce

Why 8-treasure?
Because there are 8 ingredients stuffed into the tofu pouches, with homemade sole fish flakes as 1 of the key ingredients!

(1) I used this Japanese Abura-age, available at Japanese supermarkets.
These can be replaced with our local beancurd puff (taupok) too.

(2) I was using homemade sole fish flakes which wasn’t salty, do adjust the seasoning accordingly.

This recipe is a collaboration with Singapore Home Cooks (FB page) and Dancing Chef™ (Singapore).

Wishing all my readers,
