Indonesian beef and potato fritters. These could probably be made with leftover mashed potatoes as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together the mashed potatoes, 1 teaspoon of the salt, half the pepper, the coriander, nutmeg, parsley and egg.
  2. Preheat a wok until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of the oil, the shallots and garlic; saute until soft.
  3. Add beef and stir to break up clumps; brown until meat is no longer red, about 2 minutes. Season with remaining salt and pepper. Cool.
  4. Combine the meat with the potato mixture.
  5. Form into 16 balls and flatten them into cakes about 2 inches round by 1 inch thick.
  6. Refrigerate, if not fried immediately.
  7. Pour 2 inches of oil into a preheated wok. Heat to 365°F Add 4 or 5 cakes, or as many as will fit into the pan without crowding or reducing the temperature of the oil.
  8. Deep fry, turning occasionally until golden brown, about 3 minutes. (If preferred, the cakes may be pan-fried in a flat skillet.) Remove to paper towels to drain. Serve hot or at room temperature.
