    Recipe ingredients and directions:

    1 pound extra-firm tofu, cubed into small bite-sized pieces

    1/3 cup unsalted, skinned peanuts

    2-10 dried red chilies

    4 green onions, trimmed and sliced into 1-inch pieces, (white & green parts)

    oil for frying

    4 tablespoons water

    1 tablespoon corn starch

    4 tablespoons soy sauce

    3 tablespoons rice wine, mirin or dry sherry (I use sherry)

    1 teaspoon sugar

    Put a medium pot of salted water to boil. Rinse the block of tofu

    and cube it into bite-sized pieces and place the tofu into the

    rapidly boiling salted water. Let the tofu remain in the water

    until it returns to a boil and the tofu cubes rise to the top.

    Drain and put on a plate in a single layer to cool a bit.

    Make the sauce. In a bowl, mix the cornstarch into the water.

    Add the soy sauce, sherry and sugar. Stir to blend.

    To cook the dish: (I use a flat bottomed Teflon skillet and keep

    the flame pretty high throughout the approx. 5-7 minutes it takes

    to complete the dish.) Heat the skillet and pour enough oil to

    coat bottom of skillet. Fry chilies until they begin to turn brown.

    Remove with slotted spoon to plate. In same oil, fry peanuts until

    they begin to turn brown and remove with slotted spoon to plate.

    In same oil, fry tofu cubes. Let the tofu cook until brown and

    crispy-looking, turning to brown all sides, about 3-5 minutes.

    Pour sauce over all. Sauce with thicken very quickly - 30 seconds.

    (This is not a runny-sauce dish!) Add green onions, cook together

    less than a minute. Add chilies and peanuts back to re-warm for

    a few seconds and serve! Serve with a nice Asian rice.
