Cookbook of the Month March 2013 is EVERY GRAIN OF RICE

As I know, Sichuan sweet bean paste is usually used for cold dish. One version is made from fermented wheat powder and taste "sweet" for Sichuanese, but no sugar and no chili added at all.

Ma Po Tofu

It is really complicated. All you need are meat, firm tofu, douban jiang (board bean paste), sichuan peppercorn powder, starch. dry pepper if spicy.

A key secret is tofu becomes tender when heated with salt. and eat tofu in hot.

board bean paste is the key for this recipe. you can find it at for different brand on your favors.
