Directions

  1. Cut the tofu in 1- 1/2 inch square pieces.
  2. Set aside.
  3. 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.
  4. Add the vinegar and mix.
  5. 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.
  6. Mix well (the food processor helps here) and put it in a serving bowl.
  7. Sprinkle with coriander leaves and red pepper flakes.
  8. Put the 2 cup of peanut oil in a wok or frying pan over medium-high heat.
  9. Deep-fry the tofu in hot (360 degrees Fahrenheit) oil for 5 minutes, until a light gold.
  10. Drain on paper towels.
  11. Place the tofu on a serving plate and the bowl of peanut sauce next to it.
  12. Use the peanut sauce as a dip.
  13. Serve either hot or at room temperature.
