Tofu soup is a very favorite early snack of old Beijingers. The tofu is cut into small pieces, deep-fried until golden brown, and then the soup is boiled to increase the flavor. The soup is delicious and the tofu sucks up the soup. It will be very enjoyable. Now it can be eaten in many Beijing-style snack bars.
In the Northeast, fried tofu puffs are a very common tofu delicacy, and making tofu puffs is something we can do.
Today, I fried the bean paste. Let’s learn how to make bean soup. There are ready-made hot pot dipping sauces at home. If you like the taste, just use it. This saves a lot of trouble.

3. Heat the wok, pour the oil, add the tofu in half of the oil, and fry it over high heat. Put the tofu in the oil pan and keep it still. The outside of the tofu block is slightly yellow and harder. Under the pushing activity, the tofu is turned, so that the tofu will not break.

6. Cut green onion and coriander into small pieces. I use the hot pot dipping sauce that is readily available at home. This dipping sauce contains sesame sauce, chive flowers, and tofu with soy sauce, so there is no need to make sesame sauce.

When frying the tofu, put the tofu in the oil pan without turning it. Fry for a while until the tofu is slightly hard, then gently push it, and then turn it to deep fry.
Do not use hot pot dipping, you can use sesame sauce and soy tofu to dilute and season.
