Tempe Potato Patties

English Version:

These are a fusion of an Indonesian bregedel and a potato pancake with the added protein of tempe. They are amazingly delicious with a satisfying outer crust that crunches down to a soft interior and a taste that elicits requests for more. Leftovers can be reheated in the oven or in a pan over a burner and are just as tasty.

Tempe Potato Patties
Serves 4

Ingredients for Potatoes :
– 350 gr. potatoes
– ½ tsp. salt
– ¼ tsp. cumin powder
– ¼ tsp. coriander powder
– 1/8 tsp. cayenne or red chili powder
– 1 clove garlic, pressed
– 2 tbl. celery (seladri) leaves finely chopped
– pepper to taste

Ingredients for Tempe :
– 100 gr. tempe
– 1/8 tsp. salt
– 1/8 tsp. cumin powder
– 1/8 tsp. coriander powder
– cayenne or red chili powder to taste
– pepper to taste
– 1 egg beaten in a small bowl
– ¾ cup bread crumbs on a small plate
– Canola oil for frying
– Homemade Savory Tomato Sauce or Mango Chutney –
see BA web site for recipes

Boil the potatoes in their skins until soft. Set aside until cool enough to handle and then remove the skins. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher. Once they are evenly mashed add the salt, cumin, coriander, chili powder, celery leaves, and pepper. Mix well. Set this aside.

Boil the tempe for about 10 minutes or until done. Mash the tempe. Add the salt, cumin, coriander, chili powder, and pepper. When this is well mixed add the potato mixture and mix very well. Adjust the seasoning to taste. Make patties about 6 cm in diameter and 2 cm thick from this mixture. You should have about 8-9 patties.

Heat about 1 tbl. canola oil in a non-stick frying pan big enough to hold all the patties in one layer. (You can also do this in two batches – it is important that they are in one layer.) While the oil heats, take a patty and dip it in the beaten egg and then in the bread crumbs, coating both sides of the patty. Do this with the remaining patties. Fry the patties until golden brown and then flip them over and brown the other side, adding oil as needed. These are most delicious when well browned and served warm.

Serve with homemade Savory Tomato Sauce or Mango Chutney (see B A web site for these two recipes).
