Budget-Friendly Mock Chili Prawns with Okara

Budget-Friendly Mock Chili Prawns with Okara

I made this chili prawn-style side dish using chewy okara dumplings.

Ingredients: 3 servings

Fresh okara
150 g
80 g
150 g (or use 100-130 ml milk)
Dashi stock granules
1/2 teaspoon
3 tablespoons
●Chinese soup stock
1 teaspoon
1 tablespoon
1/2 teaspoon
2 teaspoons
●Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon
●Grated ginger
1 teaspoon
Vegetable oil
as needed


1. Put the okara, katakuriko, tofu, and dashi stock into a bowl and knead until it's as soft as your earlobes.
2. Mold the mixture into bite-sized flat patties. Poke a hole in the center to form a donut shape.
3. Heat 2-3 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a frying pan, and fry both sides of the dumplings until golden. After they are browned, remove them from the frying pan.
4. Sauté the minced onion in the frying pan. Put the dumplings back into the pan and add the ● ingredients. Mix everything together to finish.

Story Behind this Recipe

When I made mock mayo prawns with okara dumplings, it turned out really tasty. This recipe is a chili prawn variation of that dish.
