Resipi tempe awet muda Khir Toyo (good substitute for Botox)

Bwahaha…You may know the joke which crops up just before general election malaysia or you probably missed it. One of the Menteri Besar insisted that he ate a lot of tempe and hence, his facial complexion seems to become younger. Some parties accused him of using Botox (which is against the faith) but he said tempe made him young.

So, in the spirit of Malaysia election 2008, I bring you the recipe for fried tempe. In case you do not know, tempe is made from fermented soya beans. It is sold in markets and even supermarkets. I think a piece goes for only RM2.

tempe or tempeh

It is a thin film of soya bean which you can slice to thin pieces.

I deep fried the beans along with anchovies and onions. When these ingredients are crispy, I pour away all the oil.

curry leave and dried chillies

Then, I add in the curry leaves and dried chillies and keep frying. (I didn’t put them in the deep fry as I do not want my oil to smell of the chillies and curry leaves.)

After that, add sugar and a few dashes of fish sauce.

Now, you will get a dish which is not only very fragrant and tasty, it is supposed to make you as young as Khir Toyo! Now, isn’t that nice.

MB Khir denies undergoing face job

SELANGOR Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo’s looks caught the media’s attention again, when Utusan Malaysia reported on his denial that he underwent facial surgery or Botox injections.

Dr Mohd Khir was speaking during a function at Taman Desa Ria PJS5 in Petaling Jaya on Sunday, when he said his youthful looks were mainly due to his diet of tempe or fried soyabeans, a Javanese delicacy.

“Tempe contains a high amount of proteins and it has nutritional contents to ward off cancer.

“The opposition has always accused me of using Botox or going under the knife, which I have not,” he said.

  4. Here in Perth, we can buy tempeh in the normal supermarket such as Coles or Woolworths. No need to go to the oriental shop to get one. Tempeh is consider as a superfood. Fully nutritious.

    But superfood or not, I’m almost certain it cant make you look younger with taut skin. Not only that, but making you look younger too. Boleh percaya ke?
