Vegan Chinese Burger (Rou Jia Mo)

Chinese Burger “Rou Jia Mo” 

It means “meat in a bun” while normally made with meat but in this recipe, I used tofu with spices. I made the bun from scratch. This is a popular street food.

The origin of this dish is from Shaanxi province (Xi’an). And widely consume all over China. So I decided to make it myself.
