    The Hungry Vegan's Note:

    Crispy tofu in a sweet, blazing hot sauce. In my take on this dish, it gets its tang from tamarind and its heat from Thai dragon peppers. This recipe makes a little extra sauce because it's so good, you'll want to put it on everything.

      I'm not leaving stars because I scaled this way down, just eyeballed the amounts, and substituted some ingredients. Turned out good and I enjoyed it! Thanks! Made for PAC, spring 2014.
