DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the tofu in 1- 1/2 inch square pieces.
  • Set aside.
  • Make a paste (with such small quantities, a mortar and pestle are probably the easiest method) of the garlic, coriander, 3 seeded chili peppers, and salt.
  • Add the vinegar and mix.
  • Dissolve the 1/4 cup sugar in 1/4 cup hot water and add it to the paste along with the 1/4 cup of chopped peanuts.
  • Mix well (the food processor helps here) and put it in a serving bowl.
  • Sprinkle with coriander leaves and red pepper flakes.
  • Put the 2 cup of peanut oil in a wok or frying pan over medium-high heat.
  • Deep-fry the tofu in hot (360 degrees Fahrenheit) oil for 5 minutes, until a light gold.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Place the tofu on a serving plate and the bowl of peanut sauce next to it.
  • Use the peanut sauce as a dip.
  • Serve either hot or at room temperature.
