This is a well known Indonesian hawker food, it is one of the member of the very famous gorengan foods which consists of anything deep fried. Its brothers and sisters are fried banana, fried cassava, sweet potato, tofu, and tempe. Not an actual healthy selection of food since they all deep fried, but surely taste homely for me.

3 stalks Spring Onions, chop thinly


50 ml Coconut Milk

100 ml Water
