Batagor is an abbreviation from baso tahu goreng. Here is a little tutorial of bahasa Indonesia. Baso or bakso means meatballs; tahu means tofu and goreng means fry. I prefer translate those words into Fried Dumpling as it contains fried fishballs, shu mai, and filled tofus.
The basic recipe is actually the same with Bandung Style Steamed Dumplings (Siomay Bandung). However, I changed the recipe of batagor slightly. Both of them are served with the same peanut sambal that I posted before on my Siomay Bandung.
Batagor and siomay are typical street foods in Java especially the west part.
Batagor (Baso Tahu Goreng)
– Fried Dumplings –
500 g featherback fish (ikan belida) paste -> can be substituted for other white fish or shrimp or chicken
2 tsbp shallots, grated
1 tbsp mashed roasted garlic
2 tsp ground white pepper
2 tsp ground dried shrimp (ebi tumbuk)
1 tsp fish sauce -> my idea
2 1/2 tsp sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsbp sesame oil
400 g chayotte or jicama, shredded and drain
250 g tapioca starch
tofu or tofu puffs
cucumber acar (cucumber pickle)
1. In a big bowl, combine fish paste with shallot, garlic, white pepper, dried shrimp, fish sauce, sugar, salt and sesame seed oil. Then add egg and mix well.
2 Add chayotte or jicama, mix well. Add tapioca starch and mix well again. Set aside.
3. Divide fish paste filling mixture into 3 parts. One for fried siomay (shu mai), one for tofu and another one for fishball.
1. Halve tofus into triangle shape. Use a spoon (a grapefruit spoon works great here) to remove the tofu from the middle of each triangle. Be careful to keep the pouch intact. Combine the tofu parts that you take out of the middle with a part of filling.
2. With a tablespoon, scoop the filling and gently stuff in each piece of tofu. Do this step until all tofus are used up. Deep fry to golden brown.
However, you will need to make changing if you use tofu puffs. All you need to do is cutting the puffs halved. Then fill with a teaspoon of fish paste mixture. Steam to them to cook the filling then fry.
Lay a wonton skin on a flat surface. Brush the edges of skin with a little water. Place 1 teaspoon of filling into skin, being careful to avoid the edges. Fold and unify the edges together to seal. Repeat the same step until the filling is used up. Deep fry to golden brown.
With two spoons, make a ball of 1 tablespoon mixture. Drop into a fryer to cook it. Repeat the same step until the filling is used up. I myself like to drop the balls into a 90C hot water to cook the inside until the balls floating. Drain then fry them to golden brown.
Serving: plate siomay, filled tofu and fishball. Pour peanut sambal over. Drizzle kecap manis and ketchup over. Add acar and chili sambal (only if you feel the peanut sambal is not hot enough) on the side.
