Fry Tofu/두부튀김/ 炸豆腐

Tofu is also known as "Bean curd". It is commonly used for cooking, to fry,to braise etc. I believe that you all know that tofu is originated in ancient China, but, do you know that who was the one to invent this tofu ? Tofu was invented in northern China around 164 BC by Lord Liu An (刘安), a Han (汉) Dynastry Prince.

This is a very simple dish by frying it and dipping it with Korean soy bean sauce & leek.

豆腐,是非常普遍的料理材料,可用来炸,烩等。 我相信大家都知道豆腐源自中国。但,您可知道那是谁发明的? 豆腐起源自中国北部,大约是在公元前 164 年,汉朝的刘安太子。
