Cempedak fritters

I'm not a big fan of cempedak although I do eat it ... once in a very blue moon. Last weekend dad bought a cempedak from Balik Pulau. He left it there at home for a night and the whole entire house stinks of cempedak!!! The smell is so strong that I can actually smell it even before entering my apartment. Wonder if my neighbours smell it too. Since we didn't like eating cempedak in its fruit state, he decided to make cempedak fritters and this is his first time making cempedak fritters.

The huge cempedak bought from Balik Pulau ...

Looks kinda yucky like this, don't you think?!

Looks better like this ...

Dad decided to de-seed them. Easier to eat, he says. But they looked kinda 'penyet' after he de-seeded them!!!

The batter ... made from some special type of flour used for making fritters. I never knew my dad would know such things!!! Haha ...

Batter all done and ready to start frying ...

Heat up the oil ...

Dip the cempedak into the batter ...

And into the oil it goes ... fry ... fry ...

Then out comes the fried cempedak ... all crispy and golden ...

But after a while, they all flattened and went back to their 'penyet' state!!! Why?!

The cempedak fritters were not bad actually, but a little flattened.

10 quacks:

I like to eat the deep fried with the seeds attached... The seed can be eaten as well after deep fried. Yummy!

The danger of eating this is one can't stop. Flesh and eat.
