Ingredients for Tofu with peanut sauce

  • 1 1/4 cups peanut oil
  • 3 cups unsalted roasted peanuts
  • 7 eschalots, peeled, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2cm piece fresh ginger, peeled, sliced
  • 7 red bird’s eye chillies, trimmed
  • 1 lemongrass stalk, cut into 3 pieces
  • 2 teaspoons dark palm sugar, grated
  • 1 teaspoon

    Tofu with peanut sauce, How to Make

    • Step 1
      Heat 1 cup oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook peanuts, in 2 batches, for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a processor. Discard oil. Process until peanuts are roughly chopped. Transfer to a bowl.
    • Step 2
      Process eschalot, garlic, ginger, chillies and 3/4 cup cold water until smooth.
    • Step 3
      Heat remaining oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Cook eschalot mixture for 3 to 4 minutes or until fragrant. Add peanuts, lemongrass, palm sugar, tamarind, 1/4 cup kecap manis, lime juice and 1 1/4 cups cold water. Season with salt. Bring to a simmer. Simmer, stirring to prevent splitting, for 5 minutes or until thick and fragrant.
    • Step 4
      Arrange tofu puffs on a plate. Top with beansprouts and peanut sauce. Drizzle with remaining kecap manis. Sprinkle with fried shallots. Serve.

    Notes:
    You can make this recipe up to the end of step 3 three days ahead. Cool. Transfer to an airtight container. Cover and refrigerate. Sauce will thicken on standing. Reheat in a saucepan over medium heat, adding a little boiling water if necessary. Peanut sauce makes a great condiment.
