Fried Tofu with Peanut Dipping Sauce – Tou Hu Tod

In Thailand, you find the fried tofu sold at the same stall or cart with fried taro. It is a wonderful snack even for those who are not so fond of tofu because the sweet cilantro and peanut sauce makes up for the bland tofu. It can be highly recommend as a snack or appetizer even if you are not a vegetarian. I often bring this dish to potlucks because it is fast, tasty and both vegetarians and non-vegetarians enjoy it.


  • 1 bag tofu – cubed deep fried


  • 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 aluminium 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.
  • If pre-fried tofu cubes are not available, I suggest taking extra firm tofu, cutting it into bite size pieces and deep frying the pieces in oil until golden brown.
  • Serve hot with cilantro, peanut sauce.
