Place the ingredients for ground spices into a food processor and grind into a paste. Set aside
Preheat medium to large pot with cooking oil. When hot enough, add in the ground spices and other spices and saute for about 5 minutes until really fragrant
Add fresh herbs and the chicken broth and bring to a gentle simmer. Add green beans and cook for about 5 minutes until soft, but not mushy. Add tempeh and coconut milk and bring to a gentle simmer (do not boil) for another 2 minutes.
Season with coconut sugar and salt to your taste. Garnish with fried shallots crisp and serve as part of a multi-course meal with rice
If you use chili in the recipe, your gulai will appear more orange in color instead of yellow. I don't add any chili because my kids don't like it spicy. You can also use my all-purpose chili sauce to give that nice orange color.
