Vege Fritter aka Cucur Sayur

For day 13 of break fast, I made some vege fritters for the family (that is the side dish). The main dish was Nasi Lemak Bebas Santan (which I will share in the next entry).

I am the only one who loves the fritters. Hubby will have some, but MUST have it with the groundnut sauce or sugar. Since the rest of the family member can enjoy their Nasi Lemak Bebas Santan, I can enjoy my fritters.

To me, it has some nutritional value except that it is a bit oily (but I use the sunflower oil for frying ma...)

A search on the internet about sunflower oil landed me with this interesting facts (

Sunflower oil is very high in polyunsaturated fat. Next to sunflower, it is the highest -- its fatty acid composition ranges between 64 and 68 percent. From a nutritional standpoint, this is desirable, because as mentioned earlier, polyunsaturates are the source of essential fatty acids necessary for the production of prostaglandins.

But ..... there's something not interesting facts that I did not know before and need to rethink about the cooking oil used....hmmm ....

But because of their sensitivity, most polyunsaturated oils, including sunflower, should only be used raw. Once damaged, polyunsaturated oils form free radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive molecular fragments that attack and weaken cell membranes, causing premature aging and disease.

Anyway, lets get back to our cooking, ...

The Ingredient

Plain water (as required to form a batter)
1 cupMultipurpose flour
2 inches Carrot (sliced thinly)
1 Potato (sliced thinly)
Salt (to taste)
1 tsp Eno (you may also use baking powder)
Minced Chicken (you can replace it with shrimp or anchovies)
1 Egg (will make it tastier and softer ... but I did not put it as my dear Sabrina is allergic to it)
Spring onion or kuchai (I did not have either one of it yesterday, so, make do without it)

How to

1. Mixed all the ingredient into a batter except for the Eno.
2. Let it rest for a while. The longer the better the batter will be.
3. Just before frying, add the Eno.

Best served with home made chilli sauce or groundnut sauce. I made mine groundnut sauce in a simplest and fastest way.

The Groundnut Sauce

The Ingredient

Groundnut (fried without oil for a short while) - grind till fine
Chilli paste (in my case, I readily cooked the chilli for fast and easy cooking)
Tamarind juice
Salt to taste
Hot water

How to

Add everything together to your own taste and like. For me, I made it with extra sugar as my hubby likes it sweet.

And guess what? I only had the fritters for break fast yesterday and it was filling .... Alhamdulillah.
