Introduction

I must say. I didn't change bowls as the recipe instructs, I used a bowl I could present at the table to make it easier. I also mixed the ingredients that are put over the tofu before steaming to dissolve the sugar. * You may think the amount of water is too much, well I did anyway. But don't, the flavour of this sauce is so good, you want it all:):) The measurement is spot on:) ** The Sichuan Pepper and Salt mixture is just made from one part Pepper to three parts Salt. Dry roast them in a pan until the mix is aromatic and the pepper begins to pop. Remove from heat, allow to cool and then grind in mortar and pestle or in a grinder. This stuff is gooooood:)
