You will need:

1 pack tofu/tokwa, sliced into desired cut
3 tbsp garlic, minced
1/2 cup red onion
1/2 cup onion leek, chopped
1 tbsp coconut or olive oil
2 tbsp soysauce
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp hot pepper flakes
1/2 cup water
1 tsp roasted sesame seed (optional)


Fry the tofu/tokwa in oil or if you have non-stick pan, you can opt not to them in oil. Prepare the sauce in a bowl by mixing soysauce, sugar, salt, hot pepper flakes and water, stir and then set aside. In a pan, sauté garlic, onion and leeks until they caramelize. Add the sauce mixture. Mix until the sauce gets a little thicker and then add the fried tofu. Make sure each tofu is coated with the sauce. Add some sesame seeds for added flavor.
