Ian Lai’s Asian Inspired Mah Poh Tofu with Multigrain Rice

Mah Poh Tofu is a popular Szechuan dish. The name came from the old lady with pocked marked who sell this dish along the street.

Ian bought the above ingredients from T&T
To cook the multi-grain rice, use 2 parts of water to 1 part of multi-grain rice.
Bring to a boil and lower heat to simmer until all the liquid is absorbed.
This multi-grain rice has Chinese yam in it.
To prepare the Mah Poh tofu, cube the soft tofu and place in a pot of hot water to warm it up. Drain.
Brown the ground pork in a dry frying pan. No oil is needed as the pork will release some grease. Break up the pork with a wooden spoon. Fry until all the moisture is evaporated. This will bring out the sweetness of the meat.
Season the pork with a little salt.
Add the soft tofu and the Mah Poh tofu seasoning. Toss gently to combine.
