Tahu Berontak (Deep-fried stuffed tofu puff) ..包菜酿豆卜- AFF Indonesia

Saw this deep fried stuffed tofu puff in Y3k recipes (volume 72) food magazine. This is one of the few recipes contribute by my Ah Chi to Y3k recipes magazine. I like stuffed tofu puff so i pick this to try. It turn out really yummy although the ingredients is normal but the coriander powder make it taste special.

She learn this from a pakcik (uncle) during her Bali trip. This is a kind of 'gorengan'; fried according to her. She also told me the special part of this stuffed tofu puff is the adding of coriander powder that makes it taste and smell really good!!
After goggle i found that almost every city in Indonesia have this kind of street snack (gorengan - fried snack); since it is easy to make. In actually 'gorengan' does not represent any name for any specific fried food but it is a group of snack food that is deep fried. 

 Since Ah Chi learn this from a pakcik in her Bali trip, i was thinking linking this to AFF - Indonesia. I quickly check with Alice from I Love, I Cook, I Bake to see what is the actually Indonesia name for this kind of gorengan and gave me this name 'Tahu Berontak'   Thanks Alice ^_^

Pic from left to right: Get ready and mixed up all the ingredients.
Snip a cross on top of the tofu puff

Stuff it neatly 
These stuffed tofu puff is ready to dip in the crispy batter and ready to be deep fry.

第一次看到这小吃就很喜欢. 在Y3K美厨食谱地72期, 看到的, 当时是我的Ah Chi 第一次在杂志上菜. 她的厨乙超棒呢!! 当时看了这食谱就学着做了..好好吃! 香脆的外皮, 里面的包菜馅香甜爽口还有豆卜的豆香. 还有还有,独特的芫茜粉的香味呢!!
主要是用了自家做的豆卜所以好吃..哈哈!! (老王卖瓜,自卖自誇 :p)
其实这次会做又贴上来有两个原因.  一, 是因为我想参与这个月AFF-分享印尼的美食活动.  二, 因为真的好好吃!!

这炸酿豆卜是印尼的街边'炸的'小吃. 他们的'炸的' 小吃非常多样化, 如炸香蕉糕,炸薯类等等.
