Best Chinese Tofu Recipes

After travelling to China I have fallen in love with their cuisine which varies vastly by region and sometimes even city. During my trip to Yunnan I have been fortunate enough to try many tofu dishes and was blown away by the cream tofu, special snack from Jianshui County. The tofu was deep fried yet the surface was smooth and inside it was smooth like a marshmallow.

In the last decade Chinese cuisine has become increasingly popular in the western world and has taken the food industry by storm. These days we can see a lot of takeaways, restaurants and even pre-cooked meals in big supermarkets (a lot of us probably tried that sweet and sour chicken). The ingredients for Chinese dishes are widely available in supermarket chains as well as independent shops which makes it even more tempting to cook something spicy and rich in flavor.
