Do You Like To Eat Hot Pot?
By: Qin Xi Yao
The fog on my glasses comes from the magnificent dish on the table. Bubbles slowly rise from the bottom of the scented pot, bursting at the moment of contact with the air and filling my nose with its flavor. The red oil pot is full of chili peppers and Sichuan Peppers.
That sounds great, right? Today, I want to tell you some more about hot pot.
Hot pot is placed one by one in a round hole in the table, which is usually made from wood or marble.
Hot pot is divided into two soups: a clear soup and a spicy, red soup. The clear soup is a chicken soup with red jujube, yam, lotus seed, corn and other food added, delicious and crispy. The spicy soup has a thin layer of pepper particles floating at the top. Chili pepper and other hemp, spicy food are added and combined with Sichuan rice wine and good spleen. The soups can warm you up even when you are cold, which is why many Chinese people will eat hot pot in the winter.
Whenever I have a “big” event at home, my mother will prepare hot pot to celebrate. The key of whether the pot is delicious or not lies in the dressing. First of all, my mother will have me strip the onion garlic, chop ginger into a small bowl, then add the right amount of salt, pepper noodles, MSG, soy sauce, sesame oil, and cooking wine. After adding it all to boiling water, a basin of the aroma of hot pot seasoning is completed.
There is a variety of hot pot cuisine. Imagine the soup with appropriate meat and cut pieces of white tofu,
green vegetables, sliced potatoes, eggplant, fresh fish and shrimp. After they are cooked, they float in the red “ocean” of color, flavor and taste, definitely a real treat.
Overall hotpot is legendary and delicious. Often it is a hidden jewel in a small restaurant, waiting to be discovered. If you go to Chengdu in the Sichuan province to eat hot pot, the incredible taste will make you want to stay in this city a few more days. If you are interested in what I said, I hope you enjoy the most authentic Chinese hot pot.
