I hardly posted any cooked dishes to my blog; but just the thought of writing out the recipe and taking photos during the late evening for my cooked dishes just doesn't get me out to do so sometimes.

I posted this Mapo Tofu picture in my facebook page and one member requested for the recipe..... well anyway, here goes my home cooked Mapo Tofu version.


1 block soft tofu, cut into small cubes
100g mince meat
1 tbsp chopped shallot
1 tsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp Chilli Bean sauce (“Dou Ban Jiang”)
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tbsp light soy sauce
½ cup water  (adjust to your preference)
2 tbsp cooking oil
2 stalk spring onions, chopped small
(Some salt or soya sauce to your preference taste) 

Marinate the mince meat with 1 tbsp light soy sauce.  Set aside.

Heat up frying pan/wok with cooking oil.  Add in the chopped shallots and garlic, stir fry a minute till fragrant.  Add in the marinate mince meat and stir fry till the meat half done.

Then add in the chilli bean sauce and chilli powder and stir fry till aromatic.  Add in the tofu and water,  gently stir in the blend into the sauce.  Lower the heat and let simmer for 3-5 minutes till sauce slightly thickens.  Add in the chopped spring onions.

Dish up and serve hot.

Seriously with this dish alone can just have you go for another bowl of rice; and really you don't need to cook any other dishes anymore unless you have someone who is picky eater at home!!  LOL!!
