Bakwan Jagung

leave a comment »

This post is a contender of Tastemade Indonesia‘s post that I saw few days ago. When I saw it, I was like… “wth. they made a video tutorial of how to make bakwan jagung!” I felt that I should also disperse my own version of bakwan jagung. Sadly not in form of video, but yeah… I hope it’s good enough.

In my own definition and free translation, bakwan jagung is a savory corn fritter. Indonesians usually eat it for snacks (in between meal time) or as a side dish in meal. It also has other variant such as vegetable fritter and shrimp fritter. Basically, if you could make one type, you could also make the others.

I wanted to cook somewhat like Indonesian chayote squash curry dish which is so familiar in Indonesia but I felt that it would take so much time and effort that I decided to make stir fried spicy chayote squash instead.

Cooking in Denmark: Potatoes and Vegetables

with one comment

I can assure you that I can cook. Is that assuring enough for you? hahahhaa… But really I can!

Now, I am having trouble cooking because I am not familiar with the things here in Denmark. And as a microwave provided in my room, I am doing everything to maximize using it. Of course, a wonderful set of kitchen is available when my landlady and her family is not using it.

 

imageSo, today, I bake potatoes with veggies. I am not vegetarian, but I do need to eat more vegetables since I came to live in Denmark because I dont want to get sick.

I prepared potatoes, broccoli and carrots, washed and chopped them. Sprinkled some pepper and salt. Put some chops of butter. And sliced bits of cheese. My fave, smoked cheese from witzerland!

Mak Beng

leave a comment »

mak beng 2I was on a weekend trip to Bali last month. It was a hassle preparing a trip to Bali in such a short period of time-not that it was not my fault though. hehehe.. 😀

Thankfully, I had a friend who lived there that I could BBM to ask one or two on-the-go tips, including places to visit. One of the places she mentioned was Mak Beng.

Mak Beng is a small diner nearby Sanur Beach, Bali. It is located at Jalan Hang Tuah No. 45, Sanur, but most drivers in Bali would not know addresses, apparently. The easiest way to go there is by finding drivers who know Mak Beng. Or tell the driver that it is located on Sanur Beach, 20 m from Inna Beach Hotel. Then, they would not miss it! 🙂
