I have tried it with fried prawns, chicken and fish fillets but this time, I am using the sauce for fried taufu pieces. This makes the bland taufu pieces just as appetising.
Ingredients For Kong Pao Sauce
5-6 dried chillies [more if you can stand the spiciness] - soaked, rinsed and cut into sections
8 slices of ginger
3 pips garlic - sliced
1 large onion - cut wedges or thick slices
1 stalk spring onions - cut sections
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp chilli sauce
1 tsp black vinegar
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp cornstarch + 2 tbsp water [mix for thickening]
2 blocks of taufu - cut into square slices
- Heat oil in a non stick pan over high heat, fry taufu slices in batches until golden brown. Dish up.
- Remove excess oil. Using the same pan, saute dried chillies, ginger and garlic until fragrant. Add in onions and tomatoes. Stir to mix well.
- Pour in the seasoning ingredients and fried taufu slices. Mix lightly and bring to boil. Thickened with cornstarch water. Lastly, throw in the spring onions.
- Mix and dish up to serve.
