Pempek

Several months ago, I asked Eva to bring tapioca from Indonesia. She brought tepung sagu, flour made from sago (well, Wikipedia Indonesia said that it has similar characteristic to tapioca :P). I wanted to try making pempek, but I still didn’t have any will chance to make it, until two days ago Eva asked me if I had time today to conduct the experiment on pempek using that flour. 😆 Pempek is a savoury fishcake delicacy from Palembang, Indonesia, made of fish and tapioca. Pempek is served with a dark, rich sweet and sour sauce called kuah cuko (lit. vinegar sauce). So this was our experiment. The pempek was still not so good, haha, but the sauce was good. Maybe someday I’ll learn how to make pempek properly to friends from Palembang. 😆
