   wok or pan & cook it for 3-5 minutes, turning from
   time to time until it is golden all over. Now arrange
   the steamed vegetables in layers on fat platter,
   potatoes, then bean sprouts, carrots & cucumber. Put
   the tomatoes and tofu on top. For the sauce, heat the
   oil in a wok or large pan. Stir fry the garlic, onion,
   and chili for 2-3 minutes. Add the peanut butter,
   lemon juice or vinegar and coconut milk and simmer for
   2-3 minutes. The sauce should be thick but pourable so
   add more lemon juice/coconut milk if necessary. To
   serve, pour the hot sauce over the vegetables and
   garnish with scallion, onion slices.
