Tauhu Tod with Spicy Sauce

Tauhu Tod is a Thai dish.  It is fried firm beancurd served with a tangy sweet peanut dipping sauce.  Simple dish yet appetising.   I wouldn't mind just eating this for a light meal or snack.

3 pieces firm bencurd [taukwa]
enough oil for frying beancurd

Peanut Dipping Sauce [Mix together]
2 tsp freshly ground chilli paste
1 tsp fish sauce [use salt to taste for vegetarian version]
4 tbsp each of sugar and vinegar [I used calamansi juice]
1 stalk fresh coriander - chopped
4 tbsp ground peanuts
  1. Heat oil to fry beancurd pieces one at a time [if you do not want to use too much oil] until edges are crispy and golden.  Remove and set aside.
  2. Mix the sauce ingredients.
  3. Cut the fried beancurd into quarters or 6 pieces.
  4. Serve immediately with dipping sauce.

Kimmy, the dipping sauce sounds interesting. I have not tried it before. I am sure it is good!

Hi Phong Hong, I was surprised this simple chilli sauce turns out to be good on the fried beancurd.

Very appetizing! And I love chilli sauce..the spicier, the better!

Hi Kimmy! Agree with PH, the dipping sauce is the soul of this dish!

Hi Angie, if you like it spicier, just add more ground chilli paste. And if you like crispy tauhu, quartered it before frying. Oh, I'm thinking of this dish again. I can just eat this for lunch.

Hi Alvin, really it goes well with the beancurd. You won't feel thirsty of having it.
