Sichuan Chilli Prawns & Sichuan Noodle Soup)? In fact, Chinese food on the whole for the matter (Fried Prawn Wanton) and do I have speak about tofu? A favourite in my house. Always and forever. Any which way will do for tofu which comes in different made these days (Tofu Manchurian, Tofu Green Beans Stir Fry & Tofu Scambled Eggs). For Mapo Tofu, I actually opted for Japanese Tofu instead of the white ones. Why, are you asking me? No particular reason. I just thought I want to show you that you can make Mapo Tofu from Japanese egg tofu (Tofu Katsu) and this my version is a totality on it own. Basically different and outstanding due to me wanting to use my at home ingredients instead of? Why buy ingredients when you can make do with what you already have stocked up? Potentially. Mapo Tofu? Tad bit of spiciness, tad bit of saltiness, spring onion garnished and soft tofu (Chinese Tofu Soup, Spinach Tofu Stir Fry & Indian Tofu Curry).Ingredients
Two packets of Japanese tofu - gently remove and cut into round pieces (or other types of tofu)
1 tbsp oyster sauce
4 shallots - slice thinly
1/2 inch ginger - slice thinly
Chilli flakes - as needed
Spring onion - slice
2 tbsp of oil
Salt for taste (only if needed)
Fry shallots in oil till crispy.
Remove and keep aside.
In the same oil, sauté ginger.
Add soy sauce, oyster sauce and chilli flakes.
Pour 1/2 cup of water.
Season with salt.

Gently drop in tofu.
Simmer for a minute or two and dish out.
Garnish with fried shallots and spring onion.
