MaPo ToFu from Sichuan

Tofu is a kind of healthy food and a classic food elements that often used in chinese dishes. Foreigners may not eat Tofu very often, but when they got the chance to try Mapo Toufu once, they will never forget the delicious feeling.

Mapo Tofu is a popular chinese dish. Tofu, also called doufu or bean curd , is a food of Chinese origin, made by coagulating.

True Mapo doufu is powerfully spicy with both conventional “heat” spiciness and the characteristic “ma-la” spiciness of Szechuan cuisine. The authentic form of the dish is increasingly easier to find outside China today, but usually in Szechuanese restaurants that do not adapt the dish for non-Szechuanese tastes.
 

How to cook Mapo Tofu

Bring a small saucepan of water to boil

  • Blanch cubes tofu for about 4 mins
  • Rinse and drain tofu
  • Heat oil in wok and stir fry garlic and chilli for about 1 min
  • Add broad bean paste and stir fry until aromatic, about 1 more min, then stir in preserved Chinese vegetables
  • Pour in wine, add chicken or vegetable stock, soy sauce, sugar & pepper, then mix to combine
  • Add tofu and capsicum, stiring carefully, then simmer over low heat for 2 mins
  • Add cornstarch mixture then stir gently until sauce thickens
  • Sprinkle with sesame oil and serve hot, garnished with chopped scallions
  • While this recipe calls for stir-frying the ingredients, in restaurants Mapo Tofu is frequently cooked with more oil (about ½ cup) and ground chilies are added - this ensures the dish is served with a layer of red hot chili oil floating on top. Feel free to adjust the recipe as desired, using more oil and adding the ground chilies with the Chinese black beans. You can also substitute ground beef for the pork if desired.
