- 1 thumb-sized piece ginger
- ¼ cup peanut butter
- 200 ml coconut milk

Remove any excess of water from the tofu with a paper towel, gently pressing the block. Cut into medium size square pieces.
Heat some sesame oil or vegetable oil in a pan and add the tofu cubes. Pan fry each side of the tofu for a few minutes or until golden. Leave aside.
Prepare your ingredients for the sauce by finely slicing the shallot and grating or finely chopping the ginger if using fresh ginger.
Heat some coconut or vegetable oil in a saucepan and add the shallot and ginger. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes and add the coconut milk.
Add the peanut butter and mix well. Straight after, add the sambal, lime juice and soy sauce.
Whisk all the ingredients to make sure they are totally incorporated.
Add the tofu, mix until all the pieces are perfectly coated and serve.
