Tofu or doufu or daufufaa A�is thought to have originated in ancient China during the Western Han Dynasty. Chinese people have developed and enriched the recipes for tofu dishes on the basis of their own tastes, such as mapo tofu, stinky tofu, pickled tofu and uncongealed tofu pudding, etc.
In Vietnam, it is known as tA�u ha�� n?�a��c A�?�a�?ng, tA�u ha�� hoa or tA�o pha��, A�a?�u ha��, tA�u ha��. It varies in three regions in Vietnam:
Northern region- it is served with sugar, chia seeds. It is enjoyed as warm in winter and cold with ice in summer.
Central region- it is cooked with spicy ginger. Sugar is added. Douhua pieces are usually unshaped because of their softness.
Southern region- it is served warm with lychee and coconut water. Ginger is optional. Douhua pieces are more firm than those in the North and the Central.
