Tempeh Fritters/Cucur Tempeh Recipe @

Fritters or cucur  are popular in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei normally fried in hot oil serve during breakfast or tea time like this Tempeh Fritters/Cucur Tempeh.

With just a basic ingredients of flour, water and salt, you can make them sweet or savory.   Other variations include  prawn,chicken or meat to the batter.

For vegetarian omit the  eggs and  include veggies like carrot, bean sprout, potato, tofu and many more. Mine use tempeh (fermented soya bean cake) instead,

Use self rising flour if you  have but omit the baking powder.  Omit chili powder or reduce it according to your preference.

When frying the Tempeh Fritters/Cucur Tempeh, use a medium heat so it  doesn't turn brown fast but inside still uncooked.   Also  do not crowd the pan, give room for you to turn them if one side turns golden.

Serve with chili or tomato sauce but I prefer to eat them as it is.
