Take on the heat with a twist to Singapore’s iconic flavour – Chilli Crab, but with Tofu. With its vibrant, deep-orange appearance auspiciously in line with colours of the upcoming Chinese New Year, this recipe is perfect for the occasion without breaking the bank.

Healthy and hearty, you’ll find this Chilli Crab Tofu recipe hard to resist with the iconic Chilli Crab sauce made from scratch. We are using Chinese Tofu with Omega 3 DHA from Fortune, but feel free to use your usual tofu.

Nothing better than dipping fried man tou into the leftover Chilli Crab sauce for the real crab experience.
