Bakwan - Vegetables Fritters a la Indonesia

Spring is finally here and let's welcome it with fresh, yummy food.
NYC, unsurprisingly, is a bit on et off in terms of the weather. We have rainy days and windy morning, while almost at the same week, we have sunshine and warm days as well.



So, with this mixed weather, let me introduce you to one of my family's favorite munchies.

Bakwan - vegetables fritters a la Indonesia.

Coba bayangkan...
Di tengah cuaca dingin NYC, hujan rintik yang tiada henti di awal musim semi, Netflix menayangkan drama seru-seruan penuh smooch-smooches, dan hawa ngemil mengalahkan hawa belanja di factory outlet.


Kemudian ada yang bilang...
Ada yang mau bakwan?

[BAKWAN...waaaan waaan] *Pakai echo biar seru.

Iya, bakwan..

Makanan legendaris yang buatnya lebih gimpil daripada nyuruh Bo et Obi mandi. Dan meskipun membuatnya digoreng (atau dipanggang juga oke, walaupun kurang nendang hehehe), tapi aneka sayuran di dalamnya bisa menambah serat yang dibutuhkan tubuh.

Originally, bakwan or the vegetables fritter is made of flour mixed with bean sprout, cabbage, and carrots. You can easily find them all here in NYC, but for sure you can toss any vegetables you like or you have in your fridge. Like I did :).


So, here what I have this time.
Let's start cooking.

Ingredients:

Flour - as needed
Kale - chopped
Asparagus - thinly sliced
Baby carrots - thinly cut
Other vegetables you prefer like cabbage and bean sprouts
Eggs - 2, beaten
Parmesan
Salt
Pepper
Coriander - if you like, harshly ground
Oil for frying



How to cook:

Mix all the veggies, flour, salt,pepper, coriander (if you like), parmesan and eggs. Add water little by little until the dough is well mixed and sticky, not too runny. Put the oil on your frying pan, heat it, and take a spoonful of the dough. Fry it until golden brown and bakwan, vegetables fritters a la Indonesia, is ready for you. Take fresh chili or chili sauce together with bakwan and enjoy.
