Bakwan Fritters with Garlic Sauce recipe, brought to you by MiNDFOOD.

Bakwan fritters are an authentic Indonesian dish that simultaneously taste sweet and savoury. They make an excellent appetiser if you’re entertaining or work as a light meal when served with rice.

Serves 4

400g pkt traditional stir-fry (in the pre-packaged vegetable section near the salad leaves)

2 single clove garlic, peeled and crushed

1 cup plain flour

3/4 cup water

salt and pepper

oil for deep frying

1/2 cup natural yoghurt

steamed rice to serve

1 Place the traditional stir-fry into a large mixing bowl. Trim the broccoli into smaller pieces. Add the flour, 1 clove of crushed garlic, water and season with salt and pepper. Mix to combine.

2 Heat enough oil to fill a wok 1/3 full over a moderately high heat. Drop heaped tbsp of the fritter mixture into the oil and deep fry for about 5 mins, turning frequently until the fritter is golden and crisp. Drain on a platter lined with paper towel. Continue cooking the remaining batter.

3 Stir the remaining crushed clove of garlic through the yoghurt and serve with the warm fritters and steamed rice.
