Recipe by Chef Pau Cen
There are many kind of methods to cook Perkedel (Indonesian mini meat patties), but this is the best I found... Hope you like it. If you dislike the taste of fried shallot please reduce the amount of shallots you use in the cooking.
- 1⁄2 kg shallot, peel off the skin and slice thinly
- 8 yellow potatoes, peel off the skin, slice thinly
- 2 tablespoons nutmeg (powder)
- 2 eggs, separate the yolk
- 300 g minced beef
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 pinch pepper

- Heat oil in a frying pan, enough to cover the patties.
