Martabak Telor

Craving for Indonesian snack hits me again. This time martabak telor which originally came from India 🙂 If I were in Indonesia right know, I would just take my motorbike to the martabak and terang bulan seller (somehow they are always sold in pair) and order martabak spesial. Since I couldn’t do it here so i had to make it myself.

Martabak Telor
makes 4 small martabak


For the skin
I didn’t make it myself “lazy” instead I used ready made lumpia skin
– 4 big frozen lumpia skin

Beef filling
– 200 gr minced beef
– 2 shallots finely chopped
– 2 garlic finely chopped
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1/2 tsp white pepper
– 1/4 tsp sugar
– 1 tsp garam masala

To make filling
– Fry shallots and garlic until fragrant.
– Add minced beef and all the rest ingredients.
– Stir until beef is done.

Martabak filling
– 4 eggs
– beef filling
– 4 spring onion sliced
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1/2 tsp white pepper
– 1/2 tsp garam masala (optional if you like more strong Indian flavour)

How to make the martabak:
– Heat up little bit oil in a non stick pan which is big enough for spreading the lumpia skin.
– When the oil is hot enough turn down the fire and spread the lumpia skin (the low fire here is so the lumpia skin wouldn’t get hard by the time you pour the filling in)
– Pour enough martabak filling in the centre and fold the four edges to form square martabak.
– Put the fire back into normal until one side is done.
– Flip the martabak into the other side.
– Fry until both side is done.
– Serve warm with saus sambal and acar timun.

Ps: also lekker eaten with white rice 🙂

PPs: next time I will post how to fry the martabak biar yang baca ga bingung dengan maksudku hihihi 😀

Acar Timun (Cucumber Pickle)

– 1 cucumber seeded and cut
– some vinegar approx 2 tsp if you are using strong Asian vinegar (use more if using European vinegar)
– 2 tsp sugar
– 2 shallots cut small

– Combined all ingredients together in a closed container.
– Give it a little bit of shake.
– Keep in the refrigerator for some time until served.
