( Recipe ) Mapo Tofu

If you like sapo tofu and you like spicy food, you might like this mapo tofu.

Let's start ^ ^

You're going to need :
silk tofu / milk tofu (whichever you prefer) >> about 6 pcs (diced)
carrot (diced, about a tablespoon)
ham (diced, about a cup )
chives (cut, about a cup)
garlic (minced, 1 clove)
shiitake mushroom (2 pcs, cut into little pieces )
oyster sauce (about a tablespoon)
crushed red pepper (about a teaspoon)
gochujang / korean hot pepper paste (about a teaspoon)
chicken broth (about 400ml)
tapioca starch (about a tablespoon, mix it with about 2 or 3 tablespoon of water)
salt, pepper and oil

NB : for all ingredients, you can add more if you like

First, cook the garlic with oil until its fragrant then add the ham also crushed red pepper. Cook about 5 minutes then add the carrot and shiitake mushrooms.

Add the tofu. This time, be careful when you stir because if you stir too much, you'll ruin the tofu texture.
So, please be gentle hahaha
Then, add salt, white pepper, oyster sauce and gochujang 

After a while, add the chicken broth. Add the tapioca + water mixture. Add salt and pepper again.
Please feel free to add more oyster / gochujang sauce at this step if you feel like you need it :D
Stir well but be careful with the tofu texture.

Last, add the chives.
After about 1 or 2 minutes, its time to have a meaalll !!
