Festival favourite Babi&Co. doesn’t have a permanent home yet, so this catering company re-creates traditional Indonesian street foods using fresh and local ingredients at pop-up events. Their addictive Perkedel Jagung corn fritters are packed with garlicky flavour.
2 ears fresh corn, kernels removed from cobs (about 1 cup)
½ cup chopped green onion
1 tsp chopped garlic
1/2 cup all-purpose ﬂour
1/4 cup rice ﬂour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp curry powder
2 cups vegetable oil for deep frying
Salt and pepper to taste
Whisk corn, eggs, green onion, and garlic in a bowl.
Mix ﬂour, rice ﬂour, curry powder, salt and pepper in a separate bowl.
Stir wet ingredients into dry. The batter should be thick.
Heat ½ inch oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot, and then add the batter by tablespoons. Fry until golden, ﬂip and cook the other side, about 2 minutes. Serve with chutney
