Fry the finely chopped onion golden. Add chopped chillies and garlic. Fry for a short period. Take off the flame. Add the peanutbutter/macadamia butter, stirring. Add the coconut milk. Add 3 small hot 'Birdseye' chilies, 1 Tbsp of soyasauce, 2-3 pieces of the lemon grass, 1 lime/juice, the rapadura sugar, let it gently simmer for a short time, or till it has a sauce consistency. Switch off and let it rest for a while on the warm stove.

The Tempeh
Mix soya sauce, apricot jam, 2 Tsps. Olive oil, Tasmanian pepper and 3 small chilies, let it rest
Cut up Tempeh, paste mixture on the pieces, cover and let it soak in the marinade for at least 30 min. ( if not more.) Fry golden in olive oil.

Serve with freshly copped coriander leaves, mango slices and a lychee-drink. The dish also makes for a nice 'picnic' or as a skewered BBQ.
