Tofu Fritters (Perkedel Tahu)

Leave a comment

There is always tofu in my fridge. Sometimes, when I don’t know what to cook, I just grab the tofu and make it into soup, fried tofu, stir fry with vegetables, stir fry with beef, bakmoy, or even fritters. Fritters are easy to make, just mixture all the ingredients (less than 5 minutes) and deep fry them (less than 10 minutes). So in 15 minutes, I get a delicious and wonderful yet healthy tofu dish. Ok, not so healthy perhaps since it is fried…….but tofu is a healthy food. And sometimes it’s ok to eat fried food. Lil boy and daddy are crazy about this dish, they can eat 8 to 10 tofu fritters every time for lunch and another 10 for dinner. These fritters are crispy outside but soft inside. Yummy…….


  • 3 pack of tofu, mashed
  • 10 shrimps, minced
  • 2 spring onion, chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp fried shallot
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced and fried

Hi there. I'm from Indonesia but now live quite far away from my home country. I love cooking for my family. I learned how to cook for the first time from my mom and I believe that mom's cooking is always the best, and I do hope that my son will feel the same too even though he grows up so fast. I love Indonesian food as I grew up with it, and I promise to myself that my son, although he doesn't live in Indonesia right now, will always like and enjoy authentic Indonesian food. I make this blog so that my family will always remember our togetherness and happy time that we had, are having, and will have when we eat together and have good memories about a mother's love through her dishes. Hopefully these recipes will help other people to make healthy home cooked dishes for their families.
