【Meat Stuffed Tofu Puffs】
Tofu puffs are deep fried cubed pieces of bean curd found in Asian supermarkets in the refrigerated section. This is one of many ways that tofu can be used in Chinese cuisine. Deep frying makes them very chewy and absorbent. These tofu puffs are light and spongy with hollow centers, ideal for stuffing.
