Tod Mun Sauce - Nam Jim Tod Mun น้ำจิ้มทอดมัน
Tips and Techniques
- As always with Thai food, tasting is the key. Add a little more of red pepper sauce if you like it hot. Or add a little more of the sugar if you like it sweet.
- I use 2 small pickling cucumbers but any variety of cucumber will. You can always add more cucumbers to the sauce, too.
If you're using raw peanuts, toast them in a pan for 5 minutes or until they're cooked. Coarsely grind the peanuts in a mortar and pestle. Combine vinegar, sugar and chili garlic sauce together in a small bowl. Heat the mixture in microwave until the sugar is dissolved for approximately 1 minute (picture 4).
