Fried Wantan, Bakso, Ketoprak

I know that it seems I am so crazy over wantan, wether it’s wantan soup, friend wantan, just give me all kinds πŸ™‚ I blame my friends Hesti and Lusi who introduced me to this tasty litle morsel. It was a rainy day in Amsterdam when Lusi got hungry (humm typical eh Lus? ) So they dragged me to this Chinese Restaurant in China town called New King. They boasted about the best ever wantan soup in the world. I said ok prove it. And yes it was marvelous. The wantan was tasty as well as the soup. It’s truly a winner. Ever since that day I’m obsessed with this dish. So today I made myself fried wantan with chicken filling. I minced the chicken and mixed it with onion, little bit of siy sauce, kecap manis, salt, pepper, oyster sauce, sesame oil.

I had the bone from the chicken so let’s make it into bakso. (Indonesian meatball soup). Boiled the chicken bone, added some garlic, salt, pepper, spring oni on. There were still meatballs in the freezer, threw in some wantan and voila bakso. Enough to satisfy my crave of Indonesian-most-missed-dish -when-they-are-out-of-the-country. πŸ˜€

There was still more after this πŸ™‚ I am sure all Indonesian knows ketoprak (well at least those who lives in Java or from Java). No not The Ketoprak Dance :p the food I mean. Made from bihun (rice noodle), tauge, fried tofu, topped with peanut sauce, kerupuk and a little sprinkle of friend onion. πŸ™‚ Well what I made of course not the original ketoprak, maybe it’s the Dutch version, because I used instant peanut sauce πŸ˜› but overall my boyfriend said that they were delicious. Humm were you saying the truth or just being polite. πŸ˜‰
