Sejak liat Pepy posting Cilok, gue jadi pengen banget bikin. Tapi tepung tapioka lagi susah banget dicari, udah gitu lagi gak punya stok ebi juga. Sebenernya gak pake ebi juga bisa, tapi pengen nyobain aja kalo dipakein ebi.
Lumayan bisa ngobatin kangen jajanan jaman SD. Kebetulan masih punya bumbu sisa somay, jadi gak ribet bikin sausnya lagi.
Here's I copied the recipe from Pepy's blog
Indonesian Chewy Balls
350 grams unbleach all purpose flour
250 grams arrowroot starch (can be substituted for tapioca flour or sago flour)
3 cloves garlic, roasted*
2 tablespoons ground dried shrimp (ebi)**
1 tablespoon chopped Chinese celery
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 tablespoon minced Chinese chives (can be substituted for green onion)
400 milliliter hot water
In a bowl, use a spoon and mash roasted garlic until smooth. I like using roasted garlic since I don't need to grate them.
Stir in all purpose flour, ground dried shrimp, salt, ground white pepper, Chinese celery and chives. Mix well.
Add hot water. Mix well. Add in arrowroot flour and knead the mixture with your another hand.
In a big pot, heat some water (don't let the water boil, about 80 degrees C)
Scoop about 1 teaspoons, make round balls. Drop the balls in hot water. Cook until the balls are floating and continue cooking for another 10 minutes
Serve with pecel sambal or your favourite peanut sauce.
* Use fresh garlic or garlic powder to substitute
** Ground dried shrimp is optional.
Sambal Kacang (Peanut Sambal)
source : also from Pepy's
400 g garlicky roasted peanuts
100 g garlicky roasted cashew nuts
150 g red cayenne pepper (reduce the amount to your liking), roasted
3 cloves roasted garlic, mash with a spoon
2 tbsp canesugar vinegar
2 tbsp salt
7 tbsp coconut sugar (gula jawa, gula merah)
500 g baked sweet potato (about 2 regular size sweet potatoes), peeled
1.5 L water
1. Process peanuts and cashew nuts in a food processor until smooth (I like a bit crunchy, everyone who loves smoother texture can process a bit longer). Transfer into a bowl. Set aside.
2. Process red cayenne pepper and garlic until smooth. Add sweet potato and process again. Add ground nuts; process. Add salt, vinegar, sugar and combine again. Do a taste test, if it's perfect for your tastebuds then it's ready to serve.
