  1. Hi Rose,

    thanks for all the great recipes. I hope I can try out as many as possible soon. 🙂 Ayam Tempra sounds delicious, so I might start with this one. I’m Austrian and I love Asian food, especially when it is hot & spicy. I found your website while looking for a Ma Po Tofu recipe. I just love this dish!
    All the best from Vienna, the City of Waltz
