Tempeh and Mixed Vegetable Massaman Curry

Tempeh again tonight! I still had some left over so I figured I may as well add it to my curry. Marco really didn’t want me to add tempeh,  after last weeks chunky tempeh potato massman curry. But this time I cut it smaller and sauteed it till golden brown, before adding it to the curry.  It had a much nicer texture this time and Marco didn’t even realise I used it.

Graduation tomorrow! I’m so excited. I couldn’t get the whole day off tomorrow, so I’ll be in a mad rush tomorrow to make it to the convention center. I remember when Marco graduated a few years ago. It was so inspiring. My family haven’t see a graduation before, so I think they will see why its so important to me.

  1. Congratulations on the graduation beautiful!!! Woop! 🙂 I graduated a few years ago but Aaron’s graduation was earlier this year… so much fun to celebrate the end of a stressful era! Hope that you and your family enjoyed the night xx
    P.S This tempeh curry looks delicious! I love anything with coconut cream, chilli and peanut butter, mmm.

    • Thanks Laura! It was a great night and was everything I thought it would be! It was really nice to celebrate the achievement of getting my degree. Its been so many years in the making and seemed like a burden for so long. I think I will be only one missing being a uni student lol
      What did you guys graduate in? Marco had his graduation a few years back in Bachelor Crimology & Psychology.
      Yes I love anything with coconut cream. I never though of putting peanut butter in a massman curry, but I saw it in another recipe and it really makes it taste that much more delicious. I have also been adding it to hot oats in the morning. I am addicted!
