Sayur Lodeh ( Malay style of vegetables curry ) 马來式蔬菜咖哩

The other day i had this Sayur Lodeh (they named it as Sayur masak lemak) in a Malay restaurant which i have too long didn't eat this Malay dish. For me, Tempeh (fermented soy beans) and Tofu puff are the must have items in this dish. This curry is so good to enjoy with steamed rice, yum!

After read thru few online recipes, here come my own version :-
