Tianjin has a traditional special dish: gluten alone.
Speaking of gluten, there is still a joke. When I first came to Tianjin, my sister bought me famous fried cakes to eat. After eating it, I always like sticky food. Once I went to the market and saw a huge pile in the window, I hurried to buy two and turned to leave. The seller couldn’t help but ask me: "How do you want to eat this?" I replied, "Just eat it." Ah!" The seller was very happy and said, "Did you treat this as fried cake? This is gluten, which is used for cooking, and it needs to be fried!!!" Haha, I remembered it all at once. , Fried cakes and gluten are both fried, but they are completely different foods.
We usually cook in many ways: frying, stir-frying, cooking, deep-frying, roasting, roasting, stewing, braising, simmering, braising, but what is "independence" all about? The word "du" originally means "wei stew". Tianjin people call "wei stew" also "gudu". The Tianjin dialect, which usually speaks concisely, reads "gudu" as "du" over time, so "gudu" "Gluten" is called "gluten alone".
There are many ways to make gluten in Tianjin. Adding sliced pork is sliced gluten alone, and adding shrimp is gluten alone with shrimp. Today, I make the most traditional gluten alone.
