juice. When onion is browned, add soy sauce mixture and 1/2 cup coconut
milk to pan. Stir in peanut butter and cook 5 minutes longer,stirring
frequently to prevent sticking. Remove pan from heat and let cool enough to
taste. It should be pleasantly hot, but balanced by the sweetness of the
sugar, the cooling coconut milk and the tart flavor of the tamarind. Adjust
seasoning accordingly. Stir in chopped cilantro and serve warm or at room
temp. If it is too thick, thin with coconut milk or water. Garnish with
more cilantro. Makes about 1 1/2 cups
