Bakwan Malang (Malang Special Meatball Soup)
If I told you that the food below was cooked by me, so you can call me a liar (not a lawyer *yeah, not funny right!). I bought it err I mean my sister bought it when we made our electronic ID (yay! soon the Jakartans will have e-ID or known as e-KTP in bahasa Indonesia). This food brings back my high school memory as I used to eat when visiting my friend. The food stall was in front of her house before moving near to kelurahan, place where we made our e-ktp. Now it has bigger place and more variant in food yet the taste remain.
I photographed this food, albeit not mine. The reason is because long time ago when I took food photos without knowing what is shutter speed, aperture, etcetera, etcetera, I posted the recipe on my first blog in Multiply. For now, let me share you the recipe with photos of food I didn’t cook, maybe next time I’ll re-post with my own.
I used beef meatball dough for the filling. The recipe can be found here.
