Our go-to way to eat tempeh! If you’re looking for an easy, delicious and authentic tempeh dish, look no further than this Indonesian classic right here. This recipe was created by the wonderful Daily Cooking Quest (dailycookingquest.com).
Grind the spice paste ingredients into a paste.
Heat the oil in a frying pan to prepare for deep frying. Deep fry tempeh until golden brown, drain on wire rack/paper towel.
Remove almost all the oil from the frying pan, and leave about 2 tablespoon of oil. Sauté spice paste, lemongrass, and bay leaves until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
Add red chillies and sauté until wilted, about 2 minutes.
Return the fried tempeh to the pan, season with salt, sugar, and Kecap Manis (sweet soy sauce). Toss/stir until the tempeh pieces are fully coated with the sweet soy sauce.
Turn off heat and serve immediately with steamed white rice.
Note: We often add fresh chillies, spring onions, roasted peanuts and coriander to garnish, but it’s totally up to you!
