Lontong sayur with tempeh? – compressed rice cake with veggies stew in light coconut broth⁣

Happy Saturday, friends?. ‘Lontong’ is compressed rice cake often cook in weaved young coconut leaf & ‘Sayur’ means vegetables in Malay. Me & hubby had a few versions of this for breakfast in Malaysia & decided to make some when I found packaged rice cake at my local store. This veggie stew is also great with softened mung bean thread for a less carby meal.?

Recipe⁣ (yields 3-4 servings)
~ Compressed rice cake – store-bought
~ Veggies (adjust to your preference): 1 cup chopped cabbage, 1 cup long beans (cut into 1 inch long), 1/2 cup carrots (cut into matchsticks) ~ 1 package tempeh – cut into cubes, pan fry (or air fry) & seasoned with a pinch of salt⁣
~ 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
~ 2.5 cups veggie stock/water⁣
~ 1/2 cup coconut milk + 1/2 cup water⁣
~ oil, salt to taste, crushed roasted peanuts⁣, pandan leaves (optional)

✔️Cook compressed rice cake based on package instructions or use the recipe from my satay’s post.⁣☺️

?Sambal/Chili paste: blend 6 red jalapenos (you may mix some Thai chilis), 3 shallots, 3 cloves garlic, 4 slices of ginger, 2 slices galangal, 2 stalks of lemongrass (white part only) with a little oil. In a heated non-stick pan with 1 tablespoon oil (omit if you have added enough oil while blending), cook chili paste until fragrant & mixture turns darker red. Season as you cook with 1 teaspoon salt, 3 teaspoons coconut sugar & lime juice. This should yield ~ 1/4 cup. Scoop half of the mixture into a bowl for later use.

✔️Using the same pan with the remaining chili paste, sauté carrots, long beans & cabbage for a few seconds. Add veggie stock, turmeric powder, knotted pandan leaves & let the mixture simmer for 3 minutes or until long beans are cooked. Finally, stir in coconut mixture & season with salt accordingly. Remove pandan leaves before serving.⁣ ✔️To serve, place rice cake & tempeh on a plate, ladle veggie mixture with broth over & top with more sambal & crushed peanuts. I like mine warm, but a lot of seller in Malaysia serve them at room temperature. Enjoy!!?
