   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   lb           Firm tofu
    1       tb           Corn or canola oil
                         -- (amount may be doubled)
    1       t            Minced ginger root
      1/2   c            Chopped onion
    1       tb           Curry powder -- blended with:
    2       tb           Water
    1       t            Cornstarch -- blended with:
    1       tb           Water
    1       tb           Sesame oil
   20                    Wonton skins
                         Oil for deep-frying
      1/4   lb           Fresh mushrooms -- minced
    1                    Soy sauce (or double amount)
      1/4   ts           Pepper
    1       t            Sherry
      1/4   ts           Paprika
    1       t            Low sodium instant bouillon
                         -- chicken, or vegetable
                         -- (amount may be doubled)
 
   Dry the tofu and crumble into small pieces with a
   fork.  Heat oil in a nonstick wok; saute ginger root
   until brown.  Add chopped onion and blended curry
   powder; stir and cook for 2 minutes.
   
   Add tofu, mushrooms, soy sauce, pepper, sherry,
   paprika and bouillon; bring to a boil.  Add sesame oil
   and blended cornstarch; mix well.  Cool.
   
   Place a portion of the curried tofu (about 2
   teaspoons) in the center of a wonton skin.  Fold the
   skin diagonally into the shape of a triangle.  Seal
   the edges with water.
   
   Heat oil for deep-frying.  Fry the tofu triangles
   until brown and crisp. Serve with vinegar, equal
   amounts of soy sauce and vinegar, or Sweet and Sour
   Sauce, or eat plain.  Makes 30 triangles.

   [I'm guessing this is for low sodium soy sauce as
   well. -K.M.]
