Festival favourite Babi&Co. doesn't have a permanent home yet, so this catering company re-creates traditional Indonesian street foods using fresh and local ingredients at pop-up events. Their addictive Perkedel Jagung corn fritters are packed with garlicky flavour.

Servings: 16 pieces

Ready time: 30 minutes


2 ears fresh corn, kernels removed from cobs (about 1 cup)

2 eggs

½ cup chopped green onion

1 tsp chopped garlic

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup rice flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp curry powder

2 cups vegetable oil for deep frying

Salt and pepper to taste


Whisk corn, eggs, green onion, and garlic in a bowl.

Mix flour, rice flour, curry powder, salt and pepper in a separate bowl.

Stir wet ingredients into dry. The batter should be thick.

Heat ½ inch oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot, and then add the batter by tablespoons. Fry until golden, flip and cook the other side, about 2 minutes.  Serve with chutney
