Indonesian Tofu Pancake - Bakwan Tahu

Bakwan Tahu
Ohhh...I love having a helper!
My helper loves eating deep fried food and she doesn't mind doing all the deep frying. Oh yeah!
Hello, delicious crispy treats! She made this yesterday and she shared the recipe with me.

Recipe
- 1 pack of soft tofu, crushed
- flour
- corn flour
- 1 small clove of garlic, finely minced
- 1 shallot, finely minced
- salt, pepper, ground corriander, water, oil for frying
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 stalk of spring onion, chopped

Mix all ingredients to form a thin batter, add flour if it's too thin, add a bit of water if too thick. The batter should not be too thick (as in porridge), it should be thin, almost runny. Heat up some oil in frying pan, ladle batter and pan fry until golden brown, pressing it down to make it flat and crispy. Serve immediately. Ideally with some Indonesian Sambal ABC or your favorite hot sauce.

You'll also be seeing me snacking on Strepsils or Dequadin too as things could get pretty heaty ^_^'

PS. Do you like the "old" photo effect on this post?

Mmm these sound delicious! I definitely need someone to hold my hand while deep frying. Helps with the anxiety that I'm going to spill hot oil all over myself./
