Mapo tofu (¯﹃¯) is spicy and slightly sweet, soft and smooth. You can't stop eating it in one bite~~ Soy bean paste is the best tool for emulsifying sesame oil. Don’t look at the oil around the plate and feel very greasy. In fact, soybeans are It’s a magical food that can emulsify with oil. As long as the stewing time is long enough and the fire is stable enough, the dishes will be completely separated from the oil, leaving only the full sauce. Smart you just need to try a little. Understand~ When the tofu is frying, keep it on a low heat, turn it over slowly, until the skin is crispy and start cutting it~~ It should be noted that the sensitive physique can not eat it often~ it will have acne~
