Great, finally I have an idea of making reviews of some local snacks in my country. Probably it starts in my city first, but in case I can travel to some cities for food in the future, the collection will be even more to be talked about. In this series, I’ll talk about jajanan pasar which is known like that in Yogyakarta (literally translated to ‘traditional market-snacks’ which I don’t really comfortable to write that phrase, so I’ll shorten it to local snacks instead hahaha).
To begin with, I’ll talk about risol or risoles or resoles, depends on the area you’re looking for. Some areas use different names. This snack can be found in almost every traditional markets (or even groceries and restaurants) in Indonesia since it’s a common snack that almost everybody loves.
First, to make it clearer, I’ve got a snap on this snack :
Probably the looks is similar to croquette but it’s more yellow and totally different kind :D. The closest food to resoles is maybe spring rolls but it has much thicker wrapper. The wrapper is soft, not crunchy like spring rolls due to it’s thickness. It’s made of eggs, flour, and water which is mixed and is made to dough and then flatten to certain thickness. It’s not deep-fried beforehand, but is stuffed with the filling first. You get the wrapper, spread it out, put the filling on the top of it and wrap it like a spring roll. Put it on the beaten egg as the coating, dip it in breadcrumbs, and then fry the snack. The breadcrumbs gives extra crunchy texture to it. Yum yum.. :9
The filling can be anything, depend on the cooks or personal preferences. What I find mostly is minced vegetables (mixture of carrots, bamboo shoots, beansprouts, sometimes onion) with diced chicken / quail egg. In some places, they stuff it with sweet corn / sausages + mayonnaise, etc2. In that picture, it’s the first time I find it with macaroni filling. It’s boiled macaroni with thick garlic sauce so it taste savory and slightly salty. Delicious, though.. :9
This idea about reviewing local snacks just popped out recently and I think that is a great think to talk about so any of you can know more about local snacks in Yogyakarta, or generally, Indonesia. Give comments if you have ideas or opinions, give like if you enjoy reading this post or all of my blog entries, and stay tuned for the next foodie trip.
