Day 23: Tempe Goreng Manis Pedas

Nope, I did not forget this challenge.

This is my lunch today.
Ayam Suwir Cabe Ijo (green chilli shredded chicken), stir fry green beans and tempe goreng manis pedas (sweet spicy fried tempeh!). Yahooo.. 
Obviously H ate only 1 tempeh, but I can't be bothered. 
I can live with tahu and tempe (tofu and tempeh) alone! 

Tempe Goreng Manis Pedas (Sweet Spicy Fried Tempeh, serve 2)

* 1 packet of tempeh, sliced the long way 1 cm thick. 
* oil to fry 
* 4 shallots, sliced thinly
* 1 clove garlic, minced
* 1 red chilli, deseed and sliced thinly
* 1/4 cup water
* 3 tsp sugar
* 1 tsp kecap manis (sweet soya sauce)
* salt

How to:
* Fry the tempeh sticks. Drain and set aside.

* Into a non stick pan, toss in the shallots, garlic & red chilli till fragrant. Add in the water, sugar, kecap manis and salt. Let it cook uncovered until it turn into a thick, sticky syrup.
