This comforting dish is subtle and yet tasty. It’s a Raya mainstay for some households and goes delicious with some extra ketupat lying around and a nice dollop of kuah kacang or sambal sotong.
A super easy dish to make!

A typical home cooked Malay dish that gets you adding more rice on your plate!
4 shallots, pounded
1 garlic, pounded
2 red chillies, sliced thinly at a diagonal
1" piece galangal, smashed
1 packet tempeh, sliced thinly
1 potato, quartered and sliced into small chips about 1/4" thin
1/4 cabbage head, sliced thinly into shreds
1 carrot, julienned
6 long beans, sliced thinly at a diagonal
1 small turnip, julienned
2 small cartons santan
2 small bay leaves
Put everything except the salt in a large pot.
Add enough water to just cover the vegetable mix.

Once it comes to a boil, lower the heat to a gentle simmer and season with salt and a couple of pieces of asam keping (optional).
Cook until the vegetables soften.
