Bon appetit! 


Such a long title I have here!

Hello again.. 
It's been quite sometimes since the last time I share the Frakarsas' favorite recipes here in My Purple World.

As always, I am more than happy to share all yummy Indonesian recipes that I cook in my Astoria kitchen.

So, are you ready for another yummy Indonesian food?
This week I have another favorite dish of my family, sambal goreng tempe dan kentang or spicy crispy fried tempe and potatoes. I know it's a long name but we just simply don't have the translation for that in English.

To those who have seen or tried some of my recipes here in my blog might be familiar with tempe or soybean cake already.

There are many ways to cook tempe and I love this sambel goreng because besides its delicious taste, I can also cook them in bulk and save them. The preparation might take some times but once you have everything ready, cooking it only takes 5 minutes.

Afterwards, I only need a bowl of steamed rice or a plate of fresh salad and veggies to eat them. 

Let's cook then :).


Tempe - cut into small, thin stick
Potatoes - cut into small, thin stick

Shallot - thinly sliced
Jãlapeño- thinly sliced, if you like it hot.

Spices to ground:
Onion - half and chopped
Shallots - chopped Chilies - 3-4, or less as desired
Tamarind - 3-4 pieces
Palm sugar - 1 piece
Salt and pepper - as desired
Galangal - 1 piece, pressed
How to cook:

First, we deep fry tempe and potatoes then set them aside.

Then sauté the thinly sliced shallots and jãlapeño, put the ground spice all together. Cook it for a while and mix the deep fried tempe and potatoes and that's it. Yup.. That's it. You have your spicy deep fried tempe and potatoes, sambal goreng tempe dan kentang ready :).

easy steps to cook it..
Eat it with your hot steamed white or brown rice, or sprinkle it over your salad plate. 
Hope you like it and enjoooy..
