Hello... I'm in the midst of revamping my blog to make my life a little easier. So do not be alarmed as work is still under construction.

Sweet Peanut Broth (Thor Tau T'ng)

My mom had made this tong shui (sweet soup) before but it was sometime back. I chanced upon the recipe when I was browsing thru Nyonya Flavours that was jointly published by The State Chinese (Penang) Association and Star Publications (M) Sdn Bhd.

This Sweet Peanut Broth (in Hokkien known as Thor Tau T'ng) is basically whole peanut in a sweet broth. Very easy peasy to make and it's best served with some Chinese crullers (yau zhar kwai in Cantonese). I did not follow the amount of ingredients in the recipe so I just guesstimate along.

Sweet Peanut Broth

300g skinned peanuts
150g sugar
2 litres water
2 pandan leaves, knotted

Wash the peanuts and soak for at least 30 minutes.

In a pot, bring sugar, water and pandan leaves to a boil before adding the peanuts. Simmer for about 30 minutes or until the peanuts are soft. Serve warm with fried Chinese crullers.

I have been shoved with a new project of late so I have been rather busy, hence updates could be sparse here.

Hey Babe,

This is my absolute favorite Tong Sui. I don't know why, I think the peanuts in the US are very stubborn, I usually have to soak them overnight and cook with a slow cooker for 8 hours before they start becoming soft. Yes, I like them all soft and no more crunchy. Gotta soak them up now. Thanks for reminding me about this.
