This has got to be one of my favorite side dish when I have my nasi padang fix! Better still, when you have begedils to go with bee hoon soto or mee rebus! It somehow brings out even more flavor to these noodle dishes.
Usually the ones sold at the food stalls are meatless but I had been wanting to try out one with minced beef filling, although you can always omit the meat from this recipe if you prefer. Best part is, it's relatively quick and easy to prepare! I made 11 patties, ate 1 and the rest was walloped by my family! Definitely a keeper!
Preparation time : approx.40 mins Portion : 10 or more, depending on size
- 500 grams holland potatos (because russet potatoes tend to be too flaky)
- 150 grams minced beef
- 1 tbsp shallots (I've used store bought one in a bottle to save cooking time)
- a bunch of spring onions, sliced
- 1 tsp coriander powder
- 1 tbsp salt
- pepper to taste
- 1 egg, beaten (used for coating)
- oil for frying
- Mix all the ingredients together.
- Scoop out 2 tablespoon portion and shape/compress them into round patties. Make sure it's not too thick, so it'll be easier for the beef gets cooked.
- Heat oil in frying pan. You can either deep fry or pan fry, so less oil is used. I've used the latter.
- Once the oil is ready, dip and coat the patties in the beaten egg, one at a time, before putting in to fry.
- Fry both sides till golden brown. Approximately 2 minutes on each side.
- Serve and enjoy!
