Boil the octopus as described in earlier post. Set aside when cool enough to handle cut into long thin slices on the diagonal.Season with salt and pepper.

Heat the oil, add the garlic,ginger,chilli,and stir for 1 minute .It will smell very aromatic.Add the onions,stir until brown and soft .Add the octopus,sliced tomatoes,soy sauce, and cook slowly for 20 minutes.
