Tahu Isi (Tofu with vegetables filling)

Making another tahu isi , as I told you before that it is one of my hubby fav. Tahu isi is tofu filled with bean sprouts, carrots and cabbage. Then you dip it into batter and deep fried until the colour turn into golden brown and crisp. It is commonly found in fritters vendors (Indonesian called tukang gorengan). Commonly eaten with cabai rawit (bird’s eye chili). It’s becoming one of the most popular variant of tahu goreng in Indonesia.

I can also bring it as potluck in every occasion like birthday party, picnic or it can be served as entree when we have our friend coming for lunch or dinner. Even if I want to make high tea with Indonesian style, tahu isi is always favourite menu.

Sosis Solo has been known as the specialty snack from Solo, is made of chopped beef combined with spices wrapped in a thin egg crepes. It’s similar with rissoles but has different kind of filling. Some people said that sosis solo get influenced by sausage roll (Dutch food). The story comes when the colonial came to Indonesia, they ate sausage roll which has minced beef inside wrap with pastry. Because it’s difficult for local people to get sausage roll and of course it’s expensive as well then they come with their creativity try to make food that is similar with sausage roll. They change pastry with the mixture of flour, egg and water. They still used minced beef for the filling but in a simple way and using small amount to reduce the cost. And the most important is the taste be adapted to our local taste. And since that time sosis solo becoming popular. You could easily find it in the market.
