Fried Sambal Tempoyak (Fermented Durian)

Whilst children had their chicken for lunch, I had my favourite choice too. I never came accross fried Tempoyak in my hometown in Perak although Tempoyak is very famous there. However, in Sarawak this is a very common way of serving Tempoyak with rice, which I have been accustomed to.

4 tbsp Tempoyak
1 Red Chilli - pounded
½ Big Onion*
5 Chilli Padi* (* sliced)
3 tbsp Ikan Bilis (Anchovies)
Cooking Oil

1. Heat up 2 tbsp oil & fry sliced ingredients and Ikan Bilis until crispy.
Add in pounded chilli & fry for a while.
Add in Tempoyak & fry for another 2 minutes.

2. Dish up & serve with rice and hot deep fried fish.


  1. I love sambal tempoyak but somehow these fried ones Im just ok with them.

  2. How u do the tempoyak? I have heard about the tempoyak. Thks!!!

  3. Farina,
    Masak Lemak Tempoyak is always the best...hehe

    I don't like the smelly spoilt durian which typically been sold as tempoyak, so I made my own from fresh durian. Separate the pulp from seed & keep in an airtight container in a fridge until needed - can last very long.

  4. salam dari utara........sambal tempoyak nie tentu sedah.i like fermented durian.

  5. Wsalam. Thank-you sudi singgah. Ni feveret my husband, masak style sarawak.
