Fried Tempe, French Beans and Lemongrass Curry


The original recipe is not a soupy curry and the gravy is thick and creamy.  Since I'm cooking this curry as giveaways for vegetarian diet and added tofu puffs, I cook it with more gravy which means the quantity of all the ingredients have to be more.  The curry turns out good and tasty.
Here, I'm sharing the original recipe, which I believe is good with the creamy thick gravy.

Kimmy, this is a very tasty vegetable curry. I love the addition of tempe.

Hi Baby Sumo, don't under estimate vegetarian curries. They are very appetising and addictive at time depending on the ingredients used to cook the curry. With the gravy alone, I can eat lots of rice.

Hi Phong Hong, tempe is my favourite ingredient in curries. I can also munch on fried tempe. They are so fragrant and tasty. For this curry, I like all the ingredients except the french bean.

Hi Kimmy,
Your curry looks delicious! I love thick gravy, could eat two bowls of rice with just this one curry dish!
Thanks for sharing with CYB!

Hi Veronica, I love this curry, not only looks good but very tasty. I like to munch on the tempe. Wouldn't mind having this curry often but may substitute the coconut milk with yoghurt.

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce, you are right, thick curries are flavourful and I love the curry coating the ingredients and rice of course. Yummy, yummy.

I love curries with tau kwa or tau pok, they absorb the favour very well. But I have not tried tempe before, hehe. =)

Kimmy said...

Hi Miss B, the fried is also good. Has a soy taste of its' own and blends well with the creamy curry.

Hi kimmy i would love to try this dish. What is the chili boh in the ingredient list? It is vegetarian chili sauce? Thanks for your reply.

Kimmy said...

Hi Anonymous, chilli boh is similar to ground wet dried chillies. Dried red chillies are soaked till soft [either with seeds or deseeded], drained and blended into a thick fine paste without water. We can easily obtain the paste in our wet markets.

Hi kimmy thanks for your swift reply. Now I know what is chilli boh. I love your recipes and I will translate them as instructions to my myamar helper, the dishes always turns out yummy without fail. Thx so much for sharing. I look forward to more vegetarian dishes as my family has meatless Friday every week and I am always scratching my head for vegetarian recipes on Thurs night to please my fussy foodie husband.

Hi Anonymous, thanks for your feedback.There are lots of vegetarian dishes that I have cooked. Should say most of them are simple, tasty and healthy especially those that I used 5 colours ingredients which are beneficial to our body. I don't use processed vegetarian food ingredients in vegetarian dishes so should be consider healthy dishes. Happy Cooking.
