My family has learned to love fried tempeh which I prepared for them. Tempeh tastes good be it pan fried or deep fried. It can be served with a salad or any tasty dipping sauce.
Here, I have made it very simple. The pan fried tempeh pieces are served with mayonnaise. You can serve the with chilli sauce, too.
Though tempeh is a naturally cultured and fermented patty, it has a unique taste and flavourful on its own when fried.
1 big piece tempeh - sliced 1/2 cm thickness
Oil for frying
1/2 tsp each of salt and ground black pepper
1 tbsp meat curry powder
1/4 tsp sugar
dash of msg or chicken stock
- Combine seasoning ingredients in a deep plate or bowl.
- Cut tempeh into slices of cubes. Add to combined seasoning. Toss well and set aside for several minutes.
- Heat oil in wok and fry tempeh until golden and crispy. One tip - best to fry in batches because oil for frying cannot be re-used.
- Dish up on serving platter. Drizzle over with mayonnaise.
- Serve immediately.
