E58E0EBF-4B3B-46E2-A51E-7D557E68D2A9.jpeg

Fried tempeh has many variations in Indonesia. Since tempeh is an affordable local food ingredient, people are getting more creative with it.

It's just that until now there are still many people who think tempeh is only food for the lower class. In fact, tempeh has many plant-based protein sources.

Javanese Fried Tempeh “Tempe Mendoan”

9A1D4223-FE97-4B9D-AF28-94EC000728EF.jpeg

Talking about fried tempeh variations, the Javanese Fried Tempeh recipe called “tempeh mendoan” is my favorite recipe. I got the recipe from my mother's family. My late grandmother is the best when it comes to making Javanese Fried Tempeh, then my mother.

Javanese Fried Tempeh has a unique blend. Perfectly cooked on the outside, and still medium well on the inside. At first glance, this traditional food is similar to fried tempeh in general, which uses flour as the outer layer. But in terms of texture is very different. Javanese Fried Tempeh is not as crispy as fried tempeh in general.

In my mother's recipe, I use turmeric to make the fried tempeh look more beautiful and appetizing. In some other recipes don't use turmeric if you see it is pale in color.

Javanese Fried Tempeh served with spicy soy sauce. A strong spicy soy sauce with a fresh and spicy red onion taste from red chili peppers.


In another version, only served with small green chilies. The small green chili was chewed raw along with fried tempeh. The sensation will be tantalizing on the tongue and sexy spicy, only for the lovers of spicy taste.

Well, a few months ago I posted how I do this plating fried tempeh, you can read it at the link below:

Instructions for Making Spicy Soy Sauce

Use fresh red chilies, red onions. Slice, then mix with soy sauce.

Slightly press the chili slices so that the seeds come out and the sauce becomes spicier. Anyway, this method is only for spicy lovers.

Add a little lemon flavor if you want that.

Well, really different. Tofu is very soft in texture and has no soybean seed inside :)
