Cireng Ayam / Fried Chicken and Tapioca Cakes

Cireng or short for ‘aci digoreng’ or fried tapioca, is a famous street food here. Usually sold in a cart together with other fried food.

Usually sold plain with only flavoured tapioca flour, but in this recipe I adfed a bit of lefover shredded chicken. So I don’t feel guilty afterwards for only eating tapioca ?

Hope you like it!


  1. 12 tbsp tapioca flour
  2. 8 tbsp flour
  3. 15 tbsp shredded chicken, use any leftover if you have
  4. Salt
  5. Pepper
  6. Chicken powder
  7. Boiling water
  8. Oil for frying


  1. Put the tapioca, flour, chicken and seasonings in a bowl.

  2. The mix evenly.

  3. Add some boiling water, little by little, not tok much. Just enough until the tapioca can be shaped.

  4. Shape into a disc. Do until everything is done.

  5. Put the oil in a shallow pan. Then put in the cakes. Don’t wait until it is hot. Because if you do, the cakes will explode during frying. Trust me!

  6. Then fry until boths sides are golden brown.
