Fermented Bean Curd Chicken Wings

Fermented Bean Curd (Nam Yee) Chicken Wings Recipe

Fermented bean curd cubes (腐乳) are staples in my kitchen and I love them with plain porridge. Have you used them for cooking before? As a marinade for chicken wings they are pure genius! My mum gave these deep-fried fermented bean curd chicken wings (腐乳炸鸡翅) her thumbs up and wiped them out in record time.

Since the fermented bean curd cubes are deliciously savoury on their own, I did not even use salt or soy sauce. Seasonings are minimal. This recipe is also a great use of leftover sauce in the bottle.

Fermented Bean Curd (Nam Yee)

The above bottle was what I used for this recipe. The fermented bean curd cubes are orange in hue. You may also use the other variant, the red fermented bean curd or nam yee (紅腐乳/南乳) for this recipe.

    Hi I’m from Malaysia kl and I tried to find this bean curd page at cold storage but they did not have it. Please advise which grocery store would have this available?
    Thank you

      I’m not sure what brand of fermented bean curd is selling at Malaysia supermarkets, though I’m sure it is not difficult to find. I’d try Tesco.

      They are available in most stores in Malaysia. They are called Nan Ru. The ones in Malaysia is typically in a bottle with red cap.

        You can definitely find them on small grocery stores run by Chinese operators.
