Despite its simplicity, this was one of the most flavouiful dishes I enjoyed at the Chen Ma Po Doufu restaurant in Chengdu. The soft texture of fresh bean curd is delightful to the palate, like chilled freshly baked custard. After braising it briefly in the sauce below, the bean curd takes on a brown colour and a quite delicious flavour. Serve the dish with rice.
