Friday bentos are always best — they herald the weekend! Instead of eating it at work (as planned) I got to enjoy bento #105 during the bloggiesta. How convenient! No need to get up and make lunch; I could just dig in whenever I got hungry. And it wasn’t just any lunch… Today’s bento was completely Indonesian: my all-time fav food style!!! :)

(Yes, I’m pretty jealous at Novroz, who gets to eat it EVERY day ;)

Indo food is great for bento because it can be eaten at room temperature.

Top tier

  • pak choi with bundle garlic, red chili pepper and leek, stir-fried in sesame oil, soy sauce and ginger syrup; topped with sesame seeds
  • perkedèl djagoeng (corn fritters or maïskoekjes in Dutch) with a spicy soy sauce dip (recipe below)
  • icicle radish
  • tempeh gurih (snack tempeh)

Bottom tier

  • telor boemboe Bali (Balinese style egg)
  • nasi goreng (fried rice)
  • thinly sliced gherkin playing atjar
  • yellow bell pepper, quickly fried in sesame oil

All on a bed of lettuce.

I had some leftover corn kernels so I was dying to try a new recipe for perkedèl djagoeng (which in contemporary spelling would probably be ‘jagung‘). I’ve been on a quest to find the perfect recipe, but hadn’t made any for a long time. This one’s great! I want to try some more recipes but I’ll share this one now (slightly adapted). It’s one of the best so far!

Perkedèl djagoeng (recipe)

Makes 8-6 corn fritters.

Ingredients

  • 150 gr (= half a can) corn kernels
  • 1 tbs chopped onion (I used shallot)
  • 1 piece of garlic (I used bundle garlic), chopped
  • 2 roasted kemirie nuts; chopped (can be substituted by macadamias but those are less tasty)
  • salt ’n pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 2-3 tbs all-purpose flour (I used 2 and a half tbs)
  • 1 tbs chopped leek
  • 1 tbs chopped celery
  • neutral-tasting oil (I used arachid = peanut oil)

Sauce

  • sweet ketjap manis
  • salty soy sauce (ketjap asin, shoyu)
  • sambal variety you like (I used sambal badjak)
  • optional: some more finely chopped celery

Preparation

  1. Thoroughly drain the corn.
  2. Mash onion, garlic, kemiries, salt and pepper together in a mortar to create a boemboe (pulp). If you don’t have a mortar you can also chop them up real fine or use a food processor.
  3. Mash the corn in a food processor. The original recipe tells you to grate it, but I guess that’s something you’d do with a corn cob. I’m not sure about you but I want to keep my fingers ;)
  4. Whisk the egg.
  5. Mix everything together: boemboe mixture, mashed corn, egg, flour, leek and celery.
  6. Heat the oil and bake the corn fritters; approx. a spoon of batter each.
  7. Combine all sauce ingredients into a dip.

I’m afraid the source of this recipe is unknown: it’s a photocopy of a page in an old library book, but I’m guessing it originates from a Bep Vuyk Indonesian cookbook.
