Corn fritter a.k.a Bakwan Jagung or Perkedel Jagung is one of the most famous street foods throughout Indonesia and is popular in the mornings, and daytime and also makes for a great late-night snack. However, you can also make it homemade which is easier, healthier, and a lot more than buying from abang-abang (seller of Gorengan). Bakwan Jagung (ba-wan-ja-gung) (Indonesian Corn Fritters) is one of my favorite Indonesian dishes. Bakwan Jagung is a traditional Indonesian dish usually eaten as a snack or served as an appetizer accompanied by rice. Savory, sweet, and salty, it’s a taste that everyone would love!

1. Cut the corn off the cob with a knife. Place it to a big bowl, set aside. 2. Chop the green onion and celery then transfer it to the bowl. Combine the rest of the ingredients to the bowl then stir with a spoon until mixed evenly.

3. Heat oil in a large skillet pan over medium-high heat, once heat drop a spoonful of the corn batter into the pan then flatten lightly with the back of the spoon. 4. Add more batter, leaving about 1 inch of space between the fritters. Fry for about 2-3 minutes until the bottom is golden brown. Then flip and continue frying for 2 minutes until all the sides is golden brown and crispy. 5. After frying remove fritters from the pan and drain on paper towels. Continue frying a new batch of corn batter.
