  This is from a new cookbook I just got.  Haven't tried this recipe
  yet, but it looks dead on.
  
  This is a rather free-form salad of lightly cooked vegetables; the
  exact contents depend on what is available.  What makes it gado-gado
  is the dressing, a creamy peanut sauce.
  
  1.  Remove tofu from package and drain.  Place on a plate lined with
  cloth or paper towels, top with another layer of towel and an
  inverted plate, and place a weight of a pound or more on top.  Let
  stand for 30 minutes, unwrap, and discard liquid.  Cut tofu into
  bite-sized squares or triangles and sprinkle with kecap manis.  Fry
  in 350F oil until golden brown and puffy; transfer to paper towels to
  drain. Reserve oil to cook peanuts.
  
  2.  One at a time, blanch vegetables in lightly salted water, rinsing
  them in cold water to stop cooking as soon as they reach the desired
  degree of doneness.  Cabbage and bean sprouts require only a few
  seconds; carrots, green beans, and potatoes may take several minutes
  depending on size and tenderness.  Do not blanch cucumbers,
  watercress, and tomatoes. use them raw.
  
  3.  Place Gado-Gado Sauce in a small bowl in the center of a large
  platter. Arrange vegetables on platter around sauce.  Garnish with
  wedges or slices of hard-cooked egg and fried onion flakes.  To
  serve, spoon some sauce onto each plate and dip vegetables into
  sauce. Serves 4 to 6 with other dishes.
  
  GADO-GADO SAUCE:
  
  1.  To prepare sauce in a mortar:  Pound garlic, shallot, galangal,
  shrimp paste, and chile to a paste.  To prepare sauce in a blender:
  Chop together in a 1-cup jar.
  
  2.  In a wok or deep skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until a
  peanut sizzles on contact.  Fry peanuts until lightly browned;
  transfer to paper towels to drain.  When peanuts have cooled, grind
  in a mortar or food processor to a coarse, grainy paste, adding a
  little oil if necessary to facilitate blending.  (May be made up to a
  week ahead and stored covered in refrigerator.)
  
  3.  Remove all but 2 tablespoons oil from pan and reserve for another
  use. Return pan to medium-low heat and add pounded mixture. Cook
  until quite fragrant, but do not burn.  Add peanuts, sugar, and
  coconut milk and bring to a boil, stirring.  Simmer until thick and
  season to taste with salt and lime juice.  Allow to coot to room
  temperature before serving.
  
  Makes 1 cup.
