WW: Cooking time during the Quarantine

What is your favorite pastime during the quarantine?

Besides finishing my assignments (not really my favorite, obviously) and helping the kids with their Zoom meetings, home works and more assignments (frankly, it's a bit burdensome indeed), I do spend so much time in the kitchen.
Well, it's my favorite spot at home after my purple-infused bedroom.

Another simple cooking video at my YouTube channel :)

I have been back to my old 'backyard' which has been quite abandoned since I was pretty much occupied with works and traveling.
Super happy to create various dishes that my family and I love, although some of them are pretty simple.

My brownies cooked with rice cooker :)

I do miss my big oven in NYC though. I don't have one here in Jakarta as it costs us a lot. So I'm trying to work with what I have, cooking at the stove, microwave and rice cooker. I even made brownies in rice cooker and it worked fine! You can watch it in my YouTube channel here.


Let's cook!

During this blessed month of Ramadhan, I also cook simple yet delicious munchies for our Ifthar, breaking time. My kids have been fully observing the fasting month as well and they have been eating a lot lately. That becomes sort of a motivation for me to cook all those delicious food. Well, at least for us LOL.

Here are some photo and videos I took form my cooking session during this pandemic. Some recipes will be shared on separate posts.


Most of the time I was helped by my kiddos, Bo et Obi.
They both love to eat so they are quite adventurous and helpful in the kitchen as well.

Can you guess what it is? Sambal terasi :)

Cumi Tumis Cabe - Spicy Sautéed Squid





It's cooking time...
Kita masak yuk!

It's been quite sometimes since I share some of our easy-to-make favorite dishes.
Just coming back from our spring break road trip, I just realized that I didn't have much on the fridge.
 
But I got dried squid, onion, garlic and jalapeño, plus some chili and a bit of asparagus.
Looks like I could use some of those.
And one of the easiest recipes that comes to mind is spicy sautéed squid or cumi tumis cabe ijo.

Berhubung baru selesai liburan hampir selama 2 minggu, kulkas pun isinya minimalis banget karena belum belanja.
Kali ini, saya punya cumi kering, bawang, cabe dan sedikit asparagus.
Daripada susah, mari kita buat cumi tumis cabe ijo. 
Sudah pernah coba?

cepat jadinya dan gampaaang :)

Setelah hampir dua minggu kami menikmati Spring break dengan anak-anak minggu lalu, saya jadi kangen masak.
Banget!
Buat saya, masak itu obat penghilang stress dan capek.
Bukan hanya sekedar pemuas perut lapar.
Pusing dengan laporan yang menggunung, negosiasi yang tough dan tidak selesai-selesai atau tumpukan dokumen yang menggapai-gapai minta dibaca dan diselesaikan, saya selingi dengan masak supaya pikiran bisa lebih fresh. 
Bahkan pulang dari trip ke 2 negara dan 7 kota yang notabene buat badan 'remuk redam' karena berjam-jam nyetir dan 'ngukur jalan' alias eksplorasi kota yang kami datangi, tidak menghalangi saya untuk bebongkaran kulkas dan masak!

Dan seringkali, I cook with a 'dumping style', alias masak pakai bahan apa aja yang ada di kulkas hehehe.
  
Ini asli cara masak paling gampang dan murah meriah, paling tidak buat saya.

So, are you ready to cook spicy sautéed squid or cumi tumis cabe ijo?

Here are the ingredients.


Dried squid, 1 pound. If you have fresh squid, you can definitely cook it the same way.
 Onion or shallots, thinly sliced. 
 Garlic, 2 cloves or more as desired, thinly sliced.
 Jalapeño and/or chili, as desired, chopped.
Asparagus, cut as desired.
Cooking oil, 1 spoonful.
Salt and sugar, as desired.

Here's how to cook:

Prepare a pan and put one spoonful of oil, then cook onion and garlic for around 2 minutes or until golden and fragrant. 

Then put the squid, cook  for a while and add a bit of water (approximately 3 spoonful) to make it softer 
Add salt and sweet soy sauce. 
Mix it well and cook until the squid is tender.
Finally add the asparagus, cook it for two extra minutes until it's tender.
And that's it! 
As easy as one, two, three and this Cumi Tumis Cabe Ijo or  Spicy Sautéed Squid is best to eat together with steam rice :).

Sebelum makan, biasanya saya selalu foto-foto dulu :).
Bukan hanya tukang masaknya yang narsis, makanannya pun perlu eksis kan.

 Selamat makan!

Tempe Goreng Tepung - Indonesian Fried Tempe





Tempe goreng tepung memang ngg ada matinya!
At least in my house.

Time to share another favorite menu of the house: tempe goreng tepung or fried tempe fritters, as I freely translate it.
Have you tried one?

Beberapa kali saya share di blog kalau tempe adalah salah satu makanan favorit sekaligus harta karun buat kami yang tinggal jauh dari tanah air. 
Tempe bukan hanya sekedar lauk khas Indonesia yang enak dan bikin ketagihan. Ada setangkup rindu dan rasa haru setiap melihat tempe. Mengolahnya menjadi makanan kesukaan keluarga melayangkan ingatan saya pada keluarga besar di Indonesia yang kerap berkumpul dan berbagi suka duka dengan ditemani sepiring tempe goreng. Di situ ada identitas bangsa yang kaya akan budaya kuliner dan sumber daya alamnya yang luar biasa. Ah, mau makan tempe aja jadi sentimentil hehehe! 
Itulah spesialnya tempe untuk saya dan keluarga.


want some?

I have shared several time in my blog that tempe is one of our favorite food and heavily treasured mostly by Indonesians living abroad.

Tempe is not just a typical or traditional delicious Indonesian food that you continue craving for more. There is a piece of 'home' and longing for the homey ambience as we eat  tempe with our loved ones. So now, allow me to share another favorite easy-peasy recipe for tempe.

Ready for tempe goreng tepung or Indonesian fried tempe?

Here we go...

Ingredients:

Tempe or tempeh - you can find it in oriental or Indonesian shop and also Trader Joe's which have its own home-brand tempeh.
Flour - 200 gr
Maizena - 1 spoonful
Turmeric - 1 pinch, if desired
Coriander - hoarsely ground, 1 tea spoonful
Garlic - 4 pieces, crushed. The best is the fresh one, otherwise you can also use garlic powder.
Shallot - 2 pieces, thinly sliced
Kemiri or candlenut - 2 - 3 pieces
Salt - as desired
Sugar - as desired
Spring onion - thinly sliced
Vegetable oil for frying

How to cook:

First, we prepared the spices. You can ground all the spices or just simply use the dry powder. Ground garlic, candlenuts and coriander together. In a mixing bowl, put the flour, maizena, ground spices, salt and sugar then mix them all well by adding water until the dough is well mixed and thick. Add the thinly sliced shallot and spring onion to the dough once it's mixed well.

Cut tempe as desired. For us, the thinner the better because then it get crispy when we fry it. Just to make sure that it's not too thin so that tempe stays intact when fried.

In a frying pan, heat enough vegetable oil for frying. Dip tempe to the dough and fry it until it's beautifully golden. And....that's it!
Your tempe goreng tepung is ready. You can eat it just like that with a little kick from fresh green chili or jalapeños :). Or pair it with a bowl of steamed rice and eat it while it's hot.

Bon appetit!


My fave!

Indonesian Yellow Rice - Nasi kuning

Nasi kuning, anyone?
Hello, Everyone!
What a joyful month!
December is super special for ma petite famille. 
Remember when I said I have three birthdays and 1 anniversary this month? 
Yuuup...
Four precious moments to celebrate with my loved ones and I surely don't wanna miss the opportunity to make those special times 'special'. 
Including by preparing some special dishes :).  

I decided to republish this post, one of my favorite recipes for special times including holiday season like now,  as I would love to make sure everyone tries Nasi Kuning.


Di bulan Desember yang ceria, keluarga kecil kami memang dilimpahi banyak kebahagiaan dan nikmat yang harus senantiasa disyukuri. Walaupun tidak heboh dengan perayaan, tapi saya selalu mencoba menyiapkan makanan spesial untuk hari yang istimewa. Kali ini, saya coba membuat nasi kuning :).

In Indonesia, we have a tradition of preparing nasi tumpeng or cone-shaped rice made of Nasi Uduk or Nasi Kuning. Usually, it is garnished with so many additional yummy plates of fried chicken, potato fritters, fried eggs, fried noodles, beef floss, or even sambel goreng tempe, which recipe I have shared here before. But of course, it doesn't have to be that complete.

We recently have a welcoming dinner at the Mission for the UN Secretary-General Designate, H.E. Mr. Antonio Gutterres, with Nasi Kuning komplit as the main course.



Perhaps, you like to try something different this holiday season? It will definitely be perfect for your special day dinner as well.


So, are you ready to cook with me again?


some of the ingredients :)
Here are the ingredients:

Rice - 2 pounds 
Coconut milk - 3 cans or boxes 
Lemon grass - 4 pieces, cut and beaten
Dried bay leaves - 6 pieces or more, as desired  Turmeric powder - as needed
Garlic powder - as needed
Coriander powder - as needed
Chicken broth
Salt 

Bahan-bahannya standar dan mudah kaaan. 

Beras, santan, serai segar, daun salam, bubuk bawang putih, kunyit dan ketumbar (bumbu favorit saya nih :)), dan juga garam plus kaldu ayam. Nah, kaldu ayam ini modifikasi saya sendiri sih, supaya nasinya bisa lebih gurih walaupun tidak terlalu banyak santan. pas buat mereka yang mencoba mengurangi makanan berlemak tapi tetap menyukai makanan enak dan gurih #hmmsiapayaaa.

For garnish:


Eggs - beaten and fried

Green pepper - cut and shaped as desired
Tomatoes - cut and shaped as desired
Olives
Beef floss - you can easily buy the ready-to-eat package from Asian store
Fried onion - buy the packed on from Asian store, as well.

Untuk penghias nasi kuning kali ini, saya ambil yang praktis saja. Boleh kan :).

Ada telur dadar, abon, bawang goreng dan sayuran untuk hiasan. Prkatis hanyak telur daar saja yang perlu dimasak, yang lainnya beli hehehe :)

How to cook:

Clean the rice and put them in a big pan.  Add the coconut milk, chicken broth, turmeric, garlic and coriander powder as well as the salt, bay leaves and lemon grass. If the coconut milk and chicken broth appear to be inadequate, you can add water to make sure is not too dry. Mix it well, particularly the turmeric powder, and make sure it's evenly mixed and nicely turn the rice yellow. Slow cook it in low fire and occasionally stir it to avoid overcooking it. Once it's ready (all the liquid will be dried and the rice will be nicely damp and yellow), set it aside and prepare the steamer for the mixed rice. Steam it for approximately 20 minutes until the rice is well-cooked.

You can definitely use the rice cooker for this but I prefer preparing it separately like this for better result. 

Memasaknya gampang kan :). Tinggal memasukkan semua bahan yang dibutuhkan ke dalam panci besar, aduk hingga warna kuningnya merata  dan masak dengan api sedang. Saat santan dan air kaldu sudah hampir habis, lebih baik api dikecilkan, supaya bagian bawah tidak gosong. Jangan lupa sering-sering diaduk yaaa...supaya tidak gosong dan matangnya bisa merata. Selesai diaron (benar kan ya bahasanya diaron :)..kalau di keluarga kami, proses ini disebut mengaron. Hmmm..berarti kata dasarnya aron ya #abaikan :)), nasih ditanak dengan dandang terpisah yang sudah diisi air di bagian bawahnya. Masak hingga nasi tanak. Supaya tau sudah tanak atau belum, langsung dimakan saja :). Kalau ingin praktis memang bisa langsung menggunakan rice cooker. Tapi saya lebih suka dengan cara begini, supaya nasinya betul-betul tanak :).

For the garnish egg, beaten the eggs evenly and mix it with salt and garlic. Then fry it in a pan. In Indonesia we call it telur dadar. Usually, for nasi kuning or nasi uduk, we make the thin version of telur dadar, roll it and slice it thinly, like the one in my photo up there :).

Shape the rice in a plate and garnish it with eggs, beef floss, fried onion and veggies.
Feel free to create a lovely plate as desired.

Voilaaaa.. Your nasi kuning is ready now :). 

Bon appetite et happy holidaaay :)

Putri Salju - Snow White Cookies





Cooking time..
And with the holiday spirit, I was inspired to bake Putri Salju, or literally, Snow White cookies :)

Have you ever heard of that?

Back home in Indonesia, we do bake special cookies and cook special food for special ocassions, like Idul Fitri or Christmas. One of the most popular ones is Putri Salju.
Putri Salju is a translation of Snow White is bahasa Indonesia.
Basically it's cookies covered with powdered sugar, so it looks like snow.
Yummy and cute :)


Putri Salju..

Although we don't celebrate Christmas but we definitely respect those who do and we share the joy and the festivity during this wonderful time of the year.

So, to bring the taste of home, I bake Putri Salju and would love to share the recipe with you all here.

Here we go...

Ingredients


Flour 400 gram (or as needed..you can try with a half of the recipe and cut everything in half as well here)
Cheese 250 gram or more, grated.  My fave is 
usually Swiss Gruyere, Edam and/or Parmesan. It tastes bold and yummy, and smells wonderful. Some people like to mix nuts or almond in the dough, but I prefer cheese so everyone can eat it, including those who are allergic to nuts. But the choice, is of course, up to you :).
Egg yolks 4
Butter 350 gram 

Milk powder 200 gram 
Corn starch 100 gram, for extra taste of crunchy cookies.

For garnish:

Powdered sugar as needed

You will need baking trays, dough roller, cookie cutters and parchment paper.

How to cook: 

I have to say it's super easy!
Just like any standard cookies you usually bake.

First, mix the butter and egg yolks well using mixer. It usually takes 5-10 minutes in high and medium speed.

Add the grated cheese and mix them well.
Then knead the mixture with flour and cornstarch gradually, until everything is well mixed and become soft, well-blended dough. 
The best way of doing it is using our clean hands, so you can really feel it. 
That's what I love to do :). But of course you can always use the spatula or wooden spoon for ease.
Roll the dough and cut them using cookie cutter you like. 

Place them onto the greased baking trays.
Then preheat the oven to 420 degree F (or as you usually use) and bake until it's slightly brown and cooked. Usually, they are beautifully done for around 20 minutes.
Once everything is slightly warm, sprinkle the powdered sugar and make sure both sides are covered by the powdered sugar.

And..Putri Salju, Snow White cookiesis ready!

Easy, right :). Have fun trying it and happy holiday..



Lemper - Indonesian Sticky Rice with Savory Chicken

Always happy to go back to my cozy kitchen and cook some more Indonesian food.

Lately we have been going out more frequently. With warmer weather, being outdoorsy is one of the best choices for me and the kids. And picnic is usually a pack-and-parcel with that. Therefore I need to have a good stock of yummy, healthy snacks for our adventure outside.

lemper :)

And Lemper - or Indonesian Sticky Rice with savory chicken filling (such a long name because we have no exact translation for that) is one of the yummy Indonesian snacks that my kids love so much. And it's easy to prepare it as well :).
Perhaps, to those who haven't tried lemper before, it's like a rice ball.
With savory filling.
But not really a round ball, as the shape is more like an oval one :).

Originally, it's wrapped with fresh, green banana leaves.
How I miss that!
Because besides the great and fresh looking from the leaves, it gives you extra appealing aroma while the sticky rice and the savory chicken are steamed.

But, as I am low in fresh leaves department here in NYC, I, unfortunately, have to change it with aluminum foil.
Not as pretty as the original version, but it's not that bad either.
Here's how it looks..



Wondering how to make it?

Let's check on the ingredients first:

Sticky rice - 500 gr
Coconut milk - 1 can, a half for the sticky rice and a half for the chicken
Lemon grass - 2 pieces (1 for the sticky rice, one for the chicken) slightly crushed
Bay leaves
Minced chicken - 500 gr
Shalot - 1 piece, thinly sliced
Onion - a half, ground
Garlic - 3 cloves, crushed
Coriander - ground
Candlenut - ground
Salt and sugar as desired
Veggie oil - 1 tablespoon

Banana leaves or aluminum foil for wrapping

And now let's cook.

First, we get the sticky rice ready. After you clean the sticky rice or glutinous rice in a pan, put water, coconut oil, lemon grass, bay leaves and salt and mix it together. I usually use a traditional way of determining how much water I need, by using my finger. Yes, my finger. One part of the finger's phalanx (that's the name, right) on top of the rice, that's the height of water I use. It might not be scientifically proven but it works for me. I always manage to get a well amount and balances steamed rice, not to dry, not to runny. So feel free to try my centuries-old-techniques :). After we mix it all, bring it to boil, use low heat to dry the excess water then put the lid on for about 20 minutes. I prefer using my steamer to get a better result. 
start with the sticky rice

Once the sticky rice is ready, set it aside and let's prepare the filling.
Put the veggie oil on a non-sticky pan, saute shallot, garlic, onion, coriander, and candlenut until fragrant and put the minced chicken. Cook it well and add lemon grass, bay leaves as well coconut milk. Cook it with low heat until all is well mixed and tender.



excuse my old pan :)

Now, time to wrap it!
Take a spoonful of sticky rice, spread it on the aluminum foil and add a bit of the chicken filling. Put a half spoonful of the sticky rice to cover the chicken and shape it as you wish, but perhaps oval is the easiest one as we will then wrapped it with the aluminum foil. Steam it for 15 minutes until the rice is well cook and well blended with the chicken.


Hope you enjoy it and have fun this summer!



Sayur Labu - Spicy Chayote Soup with Coconut Milk

Hello, everyone.

Back to the kitchen and let me introduce you to another delicious Indonesian food.
It's still a few mere days from Lebaran so it's only appropriate if I share some of our traditional lebaran day culinaries.

I know perhaps you're familiar with rendang, opor or sambal goreng ati. I shared some of those recipes here before. But one that we cannot miss is the soup. 

Sayur Labu for you :)
This time, I have sayur labu - or as I freely translated as spicy Chayote soup with coconut milk.

Chayote cut in half..

Have you tried chayote before?
By trying I mean trying to cook and eat it.

Chayote is one-of-a-kind veggie that belong to the gourd family. Its exquisite  cruncy taste makes it perfect for Indonesian typical spicy, heartie soup. Although I read that it's known as Mexican origin, but I have known it back home in Indobesia since I was a little. Be it sautéd with cruncy carrots, simply steamed, mixed with sweet and sour soup a la Indonesia or sayur asem, and sayur labu, the one that I am about to share with you, chayote has become a familiar sight  on our table.

some ingredients we will need :)


Here in the US, I can easily find chayote in oriental market. Perhaps not many of us know what to do with it as whenever I buy it, there will always be a question from a lady queuing up behind me asking what I can do with that vegetable! 

it's good to steam it as well.

For Lebaran day, we usually have sayur labu accompanying ketupat or rice cake. With or without ketupat, sayur labu is tasty. Wanna try?

Here are the ingredients for it:

Chayote - 1-2 pieces, clean and take out the core and cut into rectangular shape
Carrots - peel and cut into rectangular shape as well
Tomatoes - cut in halves
Shallots - thinly sliced
Fresh shrimps - clean and cut the tails
Chilies - hoarsely ground
Garlic - 2 cloves, minced
Coconut milk - 1 can
Lemongrass  - 1 piece, cut, slightly pressed
Galangal - clean and slightly pressed
Salt and sugar - as needed
Vegetable oil - 1 spoonful, for sautéing 

How to cook

Clean and take out the core of chayote,?then wash it with salty water. You will find that it might be a bit slimy but it washes off easily. Then prepare the cooking pot, put 1 spoonful vegetable oil and sauté chilies, shallots and garlic for a while until fragrant. Put the shrimps, cook it for a while, then add the clean and cut chayote and carrots as well as lemongrass and galangal, sauté it for  approximately 5 minutes. Add water, salt and sugar as well as tomatoes then bring it to boil. Add the coconut milk and bring it to boil while stirring the soup to ensure that coconut milk is well mixed. Once it's boiled and chayote as well as carrots are soft and well cooked, your sayur labu is ready.

hearty soup we got here :)

Eat it together with rice cake or a bowl of steamed rice, sprinkle with fried onion.
Hmmmm... 

Bon appetit!

Ayam Kecap Masak Mentega - Butter Chicken with Sweet Soy Sauce



Hello everyone.
I sincerely hope you have a fabulous weekend.
It's a bit cold in this neck of the wood. NYC, as always, never cease to amaze me with its moody weather. And this week, it's cold again.

So, as curling up in our sofa is the priority, I have prepared simple food for this weekend :).
Let's get ready for Ayam Kecap Masak Mentega - Butter Chicken with Sweet Soy Sauce

Kalau lagi males masak yang persiapannya lebih lama dari gambar alis dan ngerol rambut, biasanya saya memasak apa saja yang ada di kulkas. Standar kulkas kami biasanya selalu ada sayuran dan buah segar serta ayam di freezer. Mumpung udara masih belum mau beranjak dari settingan winter, kita buat ayam kecap masak mentega yuk. 



eat it with steam rice and fresh cucumber..yuuum

Ingredients:

Chicken breast or any parts of chicken - cut as desired
Onion - thinly sliced
Garlic - crushed
Sweet soy sauce
Butter
Vegetable oil
Salt and pepper - as desired
Palm sugar - as desired. I love plam sugar because it gives extra flavor on it.
Nutmeg powder
Coriander - hoarsely ground
Worcestershire sauce - as desired
Sesame oil - as desired
Butter - a spoonful or as desired. If you don't really fancy oily food, you can skip it.



coriander...one of my favorite spices...

these sauces will help boost the flavour :)

How to cook:

Prepare the chicken, clean and cut it. I like to marinade it for a while using Worcestershire sauce, sweet soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, pepper and coriander. Mix it well and  set it aside. Have I told you that I'm a big fan of coriander? This incredible spice just makes everything smells good. In my opinion :).




Then prepare the pan, put a bit of the vegetable oil and cook the onion and garlic till fragrant. Put the chicken and cook it for at least 10 minutes. mix all the salt, pepper, nutmeg, palm sugar, coriander as well. Don't forget to add the  sweet soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, sesame oil, and butter. As I said, if you don't want it to be too oily, you don't have to add the butter. Cook it all well for a while and once it's ready, eat it together with a bowl of steam rice or a big plate of fresh veggies like tomatoes, cucumber and lettuce.

Bon appetite ...

Risoles - Indonesian Style Rissole



Time for another Indonesian all-time favorite munchies. 
This week, I have risoles or Indonesian Style rissole, with veggie and chicken filling.
Different from the original version of rissole from French which basically use pastry with fillings, Indonesian style risoles use the pancake-like wrapper with whatever filling you like, with veggie and chicken as the most popular one.

Risoles mungkin merupakan salah satu cemilan paling hits di rumah kami. Nonton film favorit, menemani anak-anak mengerjakan PR ataupun blogwaking ke blog teman-teman tambah nikmat jika ditemani risoles :). Dimakan bersama dengan cabe rawit bisa membuat saya sejenak melupakan kerusuhan dunia #apasih.

So,  berhubung di sini tidak ada tukang kue keliling plus tidak mudah mencari toko kue, mari kita masak sendiri risolesnya. Menurut saya memasaknya tidak sulit, hanya memang memerlukan waktu cukup lama karena ada beberapa tahap yang harus kita lakukan.

It might take a while to cook it but it's worth it. We start by preparing the 'skin' or the wrapper, the filling, make the risoles and deep fry it. So, let's start.

Here are the ingredients we need:

For the 'skin' or the wrapper:
150 gr Flour
1 Egg - beaten
200 ml Milk - or as needed
Salt - as needed

For the filling
150 gr Ground chicken. You can also use ground beef. If you don't like the meat, just use the veggies then.
2 medium size Carrots -cut small in dice
1 big potato - cut small in dice
1 cup milk
2 spoonful of flour
Onion - thinly sliced
Garlic - crushed
Salt and pepper
Spring onion - thinly sliced

For frying
Eggs - beaten
Bread crumbs
Vegetable oil for frying

How to cook:
First we need to prepare the skin or the wrapper. 
Put all the ingredients for the 'skin' in a bowl and mix it well. Using a non-sticky pan or skillet, make it one by one like making a thin pancake. Cook it in low heat and once cooked, set it aside.


getting the skin or wrapper ready

For the filling, we will need to saute the onion and garlic until well-cooked and smell good, than add the chicken and carrot. Cook it for a while with salt and a bit of water before adding the potato. Cook it for about 10 minutes, then add the milk (if you don't like milk, you can definitely use water) and flour to make the filling ticker. Once everything is well-cooked, add the spring onion and  cook it for a while. Then the filling is ready.

And now let's make the risoles. Take one skin or wrapper, put one spoon of the filling in the slightly middle bottom part, then wrap it around like when you are making spring roll. Fold the left side, followed by the right side,  then roll it up.  Dip it in the beaten eggs then roll it in the breadcrumbs. Deep fry it in low heat and voilaaa..your risoles is ready. You can eat it with chilli sauce, fresh chilli or like what I have, greek yogurt with onion and habanero dipping.

enjoooy :)

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Happy cooking.
