Recipe Description:

Mapo tofu was named after a pockmarked (ma-zi) old woman (popo) restaurateur in Chengdu. Passing oil sellers carrying their wares to the markets would stop by for a quick meal, handing her their own ingredients and challenging her to improvise. This explosive dish was the most popular result. The black beans and chilli paste offer more than enough umami flavour to make the tofu richly satisfying, its silky textural caress disguising the bold, peppery ma la (numbing heat) waiting to jump out. Our added peas supply just enough of a sweet note to keep you coming back for more of that Sichuan fire
