Pan-Fried Tofu with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Recipe by WaterMelon
READY IN: 20mins




  • Drain tofu (i pressed gently between paper towels).
  • Cut into bite-sized cubes.
  • Toss with cornstarch, coating the cubes.
  • Sprinkle a little salt and pepper.
  • Heat some oil (about 3-4 tablespoon, just ensure pan is coated).
  • Fry the tofu cubes in batches, making sure all sides are lightly browned.
  • Drain on paper towels, then sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.
  • Sauce: Heat the milk in small saucepan (you can make sauce in microwave too).
  • Add peanut butter, stirring well.
  • Add other seasonings, according to personal taste (I love spicy food, so i added LOTS of chilli flakes!). If you use coconut milk, add 1/2 - 1 tsp of lime juice too - it will be great!
  • Serve hot, as a snack or appetizer. Sometimes i serve them with a sweet Chinese dessert: Green Bean Soup.
