This is a great snack with drinks or a side dish to add a kick to any meal. Prepared in this elegant Javanese style it is packed with crunch and flavour. The palm sugar forms a sticky glaze, whilst generous lashings of chillies leave a long, lingering burn on the palate. Add some redskinned peanuts into the mix if you like, frying them to a crisp golden in the same oil as the tempeh.
