Tempe Mendoan ( coated fried tempeh)

Anyone know this food? have you ever try it before?. If you Indonesian sure you know, especially Javanese people, because this food originally for central Java.

Every time i go to My dad's hometown, i always hunting this food, there is very famous shop that they only make this food in "Banjarnegara".

I'm drooling again right now looking at this picture, cos i finish them already yesterday night :)
I cook this along with Kangkung stir fry and warm rice.
They don't need to be cooked for a long time, the best eaten when they hot and oily,with a piece of chili, Hmm...
You can drain them first with paper towel if you like.
