Ingredients

  • 1 lb Tofu (pressed)
  • 2 each Garlic Cloves (chopped)
  • 1 each Cilantro Root (chopped)
  • 3 each Dried Red Chilies (soaked & chopped, seeded)

  • 3. Dissolve the sugar in 1/4 c hot water & add it to the paste along with the peanuts. Sprinkle with cilantro leaves & red pepper flakes.
