Bakwan

Hi!

Do you like fritters? Greasy, fried, snacks? Ha-ha 😀

I like fritters so much, they remind me of my Uni days 😀 Near our dorm was a fritter vendor, and she offered various kinds. Some are like Japanese tempura, of fried spinach, fried sweet potato and whatnot, but her best were fried tofu and tempeh. Served hot with a piece or two of red bird eye chilies, or their special dipping sauce, so good! Light on the pockets for Uni students, yet can be served not just for snacks, but also dinner and breakfast too ha-ha 😀

Back in high school though, there was a fritter vendor at the school canteen and they always had Bakwan, a vegetable fritter of mostly cabbage and bean sprouts, but with a shrimp in the center.
