3 shallots diced fine
2 boxes extra form tofu
1 can baby corn
2 - 3 baby bok choi
2-3 tablespoons Tamarind paste
5 cups water
3/4 pineapple cut into small chunks
3 tablespoons sugar
2 medium tomatoes cut into small wedges
1 teaspoon soy sauce
Salt, as needed
Finely Diced Serrano chilies
Sauté the finely diced shallots in olive oil till golden, add water and tamarind pulp and pineapple and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes and add the sugar, salt and tomatoes and simmer gently for 2 more minutes. Add tofu, baby corn and soy sauce and simmer for 1 minute. Turn off heat, add the bok choi and allow to sit for 2-3 hours to allow the flavors to mingle. The tomatoes should still be whole and barely cooked.
When ready to serve, heat up and serve in bowls with all the garnishes so that each can add to their liking.
