- 1 bag Cubed Deep Fried Tofu
Tips and Techniques
In Thailand, peanuts are used. However, I have successfully substituted almonds.
Cut the tofu cubes into half and place them in a toaster oven or oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit on a cookie sheet, cast iron pan or a piece of aluminum foil for a few minutes. You just want to toast them. If you like them crispy, use lower heat and leave them in the oven longer. Flip every few minutes to toast all sides.
Serve hot with cilantro, peanut sauce belowIf pre-fried tofu cubes are not available, I suggest using extra firm tofu. Press out the water with paper towel or kitchen towel. Cut the tofu into bite size pieces. Deep fry the tofu in oil until golden brown.
Peanut Dipping Sauce for Fried Tofu
In a microwavable bowl, combine sugar, ground fresh chili paste, salt and vinegar.
Heat up for a minute or until sugar is dissolved. Mix in the sliced cilantro. Top with toasted and crushed peanuts.
