Jules’ Corn Fritter

One snack that I always miss from home (Bali) is perkedel jagung (corn fritter). Especially now that I am in my last trimester of pregnancy, I found that I crave the taste of home (market food) even more.

If you are looking for yummy snacks for you and family or your visitor, give this recipe a go 🙂 Like always, feel free to change, add or take out from this recipe and turn them into what suit you. Enjoy cooking and tasting!
