Indonesian Vegetable Fritters (bakwan sayur)


One of the easiest and fastest appetizers or foods to make when a friend comes to visit is fried vegetables fritters.
Today I made it in Indonesian style. In my country, these fried vegetables fritters are called #bakwansayur or #balabala
This appetizer is a type of deep fried or fried food. In Indonesia these food is a type of street food. It is easy and super quick to make. Most of the ingredients are from vegetables. But you can add chopped shrimp if desired. Of course the taste will be very different. Shrimp will provide a richer taste. Sometimes I add minced or chopped shrimp. But to be safe most often I make it without shrimp. Because some of my friends are allergic to shrimp and some are vegetarian. So let’s look for the ingredientsfor the recipe.


  1. Shredded cabbage (1/4 of whole cabbage)
  2. Shredded carrots (3 carrot)
  3. Chopped celery (2-3 stalks)
  4. Chopped green onion (3 stalks green onion)
  5. 1 cup flour
  6. 1/4 rice flour
  7. 1 tsp chicken powder (less or more)
  8. 1 tsp peppers (less or more)
  9. 1 tsp garlic powder (less or more)
  10. Salt for taste
  11. Water


  1. In a large bowl add all the ingredients.

  2. Add water and combine well. You might add the water little by little and stir well until incorporated.

  3. After mixing the mixture will look like this.

  4. Using iron cast or any deep fried pan, heat up the oil in a medium heat.

  5. Spoon the mixture and drop it into the oil. Don’t over crowded. You can dropped for 4-5 spoon batter in batch. I did mine for 4-5 batches.

  6. When it’s turning golden brown and flipped over. Fried the other side until golden brown too.

  7. Take off from the frying and lay them on a plate that already lined up with a paper towel. Then repeat the same way for the rest of the ingredients.
