Sayur Goreng Tempe (Fried Vege with Tempe)

I found tempe in Asia Shop yesterday and quickly bought it as there was only one pack left. Some items in Asia Shop are often sold-out even on the first day of its arrival. So when I see those hot-stuff items, I quickly grab it because I dont go to Asia Shop everyday.

Tempe is a good source of protein and I just love everything made from soy beans (err....except for soy beans milk). I just made a simple dish out of this tempe....fried it and cook it with vegetable. The best vege, you can use the long beans or in my case I used kacang buncis (haricot beans).


1 pack of tempe - cut into small pieces, wash and drain
1 bunch of kacang buncis - cut into appropriate length
1 onion - finely sliced
2 cloves garlic -finely sliced
1 red chili - finely sliced
A bit of turmeric powder
A bit of salt.


1. Mix tempe pieces with turmeric powder and salt.
2. Deep fry the tempe until it turns brown. Put aside.
3. Heat up a little oil in a pan, fry the onion, garlic and chili until yellow.
4. Toss in the beans. Leave it to cook for a while.
5. Add the fried tempe.
6. Season with salt.

Singgang Daging (Boiled Beef with Herbs)

This is one of the Kelantan's cuisine, a side dish to be eaten with rice. It has nice aroma and very light and more delicious when you eat it along with budu (anchovies paste). But I dont have budu here so I made sambal belacan (chilies blended with shrimp paste and a bit of tamarind juice) instead.
1/2 kg beef -cut into small pieces
8 shallots - finely sliced
5 cloves of garlic - finely sliced
2 inch ginger -finely sliced
1.5 inch galanga (lengkuas) -finely sliced
1 tbs coriander - lightly grounded
6 pieces of dried chilies - cut into small length and soak in hot water
1 piece of asam gelugor (sour slice)
A bit of sugar ( I used gula melaka)
A bit salt
Simmer all ingredients, except sugar and salt in a pot until the beef is tender. Add sugar and salt to taste.

Carrot Cupcake with Cream Cheese Icing

Haven't been doing baking for quite sometime now. But since I'm making juice out of carrot and there are always quite amount of carrot pulps left, so I decided to make carrot cupcake. And tried out the cream cheese icing I always wanted to do.

The recipe I got from Wilton.Com

For the batter:

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
4 cups (approx. 1 lb) carrots freshly shredded
2/3 cup nuts chopped ( I used almond chopped)


Preheat oven to 350°F. Line standard muffin pan with baking cups. In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and baking soda; mix well.
In large bowl, beat eggs with electric mixer until foamy; add oil in a thin stream and beat well. Add flour mixture to egg mixture; mix well. Fold in carrots and nuts. Spoon into baking cups.
Bake 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in pan on cooling rack for 5-8 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pan; cool completely.
Do not use pre-shredded carrots.
Spray pans with vegetable pan spray, then fill each with about 1/2 cup batter. Place pans on cookie sheet and bake 14-16 minutes. Cool in pan on cooling grid for about 8 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely before filling and icing.

For cream cheese icing:

* I only made half of the ingredients and the amount of sugar also been reduced to make it less sweet.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
8 cups sifted confectioners' sugar (about 2 lbs.)
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 teaspoon orange zest
Makes: About 5 1/2 cups of icing.
In medium mixer bowl, cream butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Add sugar one cup at a time and milk. Mix well. Beat on high until smooth (only 30 seconds to 1 minute). Thin to ice cake smooth; use full strength for piping borders.
NOTE: Do not use light cream cheese or butter substitute. If margarine is used, icing will be softer.

Lamb Chop

Made this to cheer up my husband on the first day of his exam. He likes lamb. To marinate the lamb, I simply took any recipe I found the best from Internet. People said lamb is best to be marinated wih rosemary but when I went to the nearby supermarket, I could not find rosemary, the fresh nor the dried. So I just did without one.

For the lamb chop, I got the recipe from Spanish Home Recipe


8 rib lamb chops (about 1 inch thick)
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp crumbled dries rosemary leaves - I replaced with dried thyme
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 medium-size garlic cloves, crushed with a garlic press


Rub the chops generously with salt and pepper and the dried rosemary. Place the olive oil in a shallow dish and stir in the garlic. Add the lamb chops and turn to coat with the garlic oil. Grill the chops until cooked to taste, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Serve with mushroom blackpepper sauce, steamed vege and fries.
