Always a delicious vegetarian curry that is so good with rice at any time when you are on vegetarian diet.

My family and friends' favourite curry which is a must to prepare during the annual vegetarian diet time.

300 gm cabbage - break into bite size pieces
1 carrot - peeled and cut wedges
150 gm tofu puffs - halved
1 piece tempe - cut cubes and fried
2-3 sprigs of curry leaves
2 pandan leaves - knotted
100 ml oil
100 ml coconut milk
3 cups water [more gravy]
Ingredients - Curry Paste [Combine together]
50 gm chilli paste
20 gm lemongrass paste
30 gm coriander paste
1 tbsp galangal paste
1 tsp turmeric powder
3 tbsp meat curry powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp vegetarian msg [optional]
Curry Paste and Spices
  1. Heat oil in wok,  fry tempe until golden.  Dish out.
  2. Use the oil to saute curry paste, curry leaves and pandan leaves till aromatic and oil rises.

I've never had tempe for a long, long time. This curry looks good, especially the tofu puffs, my favourite!

Hi Cheah, I wanted to add more tofu puffs [my favourite too] but my friend is not eating that. The tempe is really fresh and good. It's still warm when I bought it from the stall.

Kimmy, I know I will love this curry especially when it has tempeh in it!

Vivian Pang said...

Never think that can have tempe cooking in curry. What a great vegetarian curry dish!

Sapana Behl said...

This curry looks fabulous!

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, I cooked more tempeh dishes for vegetarian meals. They are very tasty.

Kimmy said...

Hi Vivian, I think not many Chinese people add tempe to their curries, but it is good ingredient to add to thick curries.

Kimmy said...

Hi Sapana, thank you.

Veronica Ng said...

I've never had Tempe before, but it looks so good in your curry. Your curry sure taste delicious with the beautiful colour.

Kimmy said...

Hi Veronica, if you like soybeans, it's good to try but must make sure they are fresh.

Hi Kimmy,

I realise that the Chinese religious vegetarians don't eat onions and garlic but most other vegetarians do. Neverthelss, with or without onions and garlic, I reckon that this tempe curry will be flavorsome enough :D


Kimmy said...

Hi Zoe, most religious vegetarians don't take garlic, onions and ingredients related to them like leeks, spring onions. For this festival, chives and kailan are omitted too. Surprisingly curries cooked with onions tasted good.

Your curry makes my mouth water! Now I am craving some good vegetarian curry.

Kimmy said...

Hi Mich, it's good curry. You can omit the coconut milk and replace it with yoghurt or milk. Can even add ground almonds, it's awesome.
