An all-time favorites since I always love Indonesian savories and Michael had grown to like the ‘Indian Baji’ while he was assigned in Delhi. I always use the same basic ingredients, but the fillings varies from whatever available in the fridge at that time…. bean sprouts, cabbage, carrots, corn kernels, spring onions, etc. Just experiment with any vegetables, it should be fun….
* Wheat flour (medium protein content between 10%-11.5%)
* 2 fresh eggs, white only
* Mixed veggies – as mentioned above, washed and sliced
* a handful of fresh shrimps – shelled, deveined and mashed smoothly
* spring onions thinly sliced
* 3 cloves of garlic & shallots, all pounded smooth, sprinkle of ground white pepper & salt
1.) Mix wheat flour in a bowl, add water and whisk until smooth. Add egg white, mashed shrimp and whisk
again until smooth. Add pounded garlic & shallots, ground white pepper, salt and itsy bitsy of maggie
block if you wish to add more taste. And itsy bitsy of baking powder for extra puffiness
2.) Mix in sliced spring onions & all the vegetables.
Ensure you use fresh oil, I prefer to use a bit of peanut oil as this seem to make the fritters have a nice
touch of light golden color
3.) Keep the stove on medium heat. Spread a paper towel to place the fritters and let the oil drain for a
while. Serve hot as snacks or tea munchies.
