Tofu in Tauchu Gravy

I am a great lover of Tofu.....cooked in any way. It is exceptionally soothing when cooked in a light tauchu gravy. So fast & simple to cook, with so few ingredients and importantly, so beautiful!

3 pieces of hard tofu, halved into triangles & deep fried briefly
1 tbsp cooking oil
1 bulb of medium sized onion, sliced
3 cloves of garlic, sliced
1 tbsp tauchu (fermented soya beans)
1/2 tbsp tamarind, squeezed in 1 cup of water, drain for the juice
1 red chilli, sliced lengthwise 3/4 way ,in half & deseeded
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar

1. Heat oil in a small pan. Sautee' onions & garlic till soft.
2. Put in the tauchu and tamarind juice.
3. As soon as the water boils, add the salt, sugar & red chilli.
4. Immerse the deep- fried, triangle tofu into the tofu gravy.
5. Enjoy with hot white rice.
