Vegetarian Crispy Fried Tempeh with Flour Recipe

There are many ways of cooking this wonderful Indonesian healthy food made from soya beans. Tempeh can be cut into thin slices and fried in batter just like ubi goreng (fried sweet potato). The crispy tempeh can be eaten plain or with spicy chilly sauce. Alternatively it can also be part of your regular dishes to be eaten with rice.

Tempeh, 1 pc cut into thin slices
Rice Flour, ½ cup
Corn flour, 1 table spoon
Salt to taste
Sugar, a little
Water, to mix with flour

Add water to flour slowly and make into a batter. Add corn flour, salt and sugar. Heat up wok and put in vegetable oil for deep frying. Coat the tempeh with the batter and deep fried until golden brown. Eat while still hot and crispy.

Vegetarian Kiam Chye (Salted Vegetable, Ham choy) Soup Recipe

Some people find vegetarian soup rather plain. In order to dish out a savoury and flavourful vegetarian soup, I used various ingredients to prep up the taste. I tried cooking salted vegetable soup (ham choi) by using groundnuts and turnips for natural sweetness. The taste turned out quite good!

Salted vegetable, 3 leaves, cut into bite sizes
Carrot, 1 pc, cut into cubes
Turnip (sengkuang), 1 small, removes skins and cut into four
Groundnut, ½ cup
Tomato, 1 pc, cut into four
Assam Keping (dried sour fruit) 3 pcs or more if you want it to be very sour
Ginger, 3 slices
Sugar to taste
Salt to taste
Soya sauce, 1 tablespoon
Olive oil or vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon
Water, 4 bowls

Put water in pot and bring to a boil. Add carrot, turnip, assam keping, ginger and groundnut. Boil until the peanut turned soft. Add in the rest of the ingredients and boil for a short while. Serve soup with steamed rice.
