Indonesian shrimp cake "dragon leg". Freezer friendly (Kaki Naga Udang)

Resep dalam bhs İndonesia ada dibagian bawah.

Selam everybody.....Merhaba from Turkey.

Indonesian cuisine often demonstrates complex flavour, acquired from certain ingredients and bumbu spices mixture. Indonesian dishes have rich flavours; most often described as gurih (savory which equates to umami) and pedas (hot and spicy), and also combination of basic tastes such as manis (sweet), asin (salty), asam (sour) and pahit (bitter).
Seven main Indonesian cooking methods are goreng (frying), bakar (roasting) or panggang (grilling), tumis (sautéing), sangrai (roasted), rebus (boiling) and kukus (steaming).

Throughout it's history, İndonesian has been involved in trade due to its location and natural resources. Additionally İndonesian indigenous techniques and ingredient were influenced by İndia, middle eastern, China, even Europe.

And as an archipelago country with the longest coastline on earth İndonesia has countless type of fish and seafood as protein source beside poultry and meat.

And my today post is one of everybody's favorite and any kids will love it, call "kaki naga". "Kaki naga" literally means dragon feet 😊 . Don't ask me why we call this food dragon feet.. İ don't think it's looking like dragon feet either 😃.

Anyway, this "kaki naga" mostly using minced fish as main ingredient, sometime combine with chicken or shrimp as well. But today İ am going to share shrimp version of "kaki naga" / dragon feet. İ combine with chicken meat to ease the sharpness of shrimp taste and also to add the texture of final product because when İ use whole shrimp, sometimes it ends up with more runny batter. 

So.. if you are ready to try new cuisine for your family.. note this recipe down. Believe me your kids would love it too! 😏
And more...it's freezer friendly and can be another idea for your kid's or your family lunch box!

Assalamu'alaykum.... Merhaba dari Türkey.

Kali ini edisi pengen nyetok camilan buat si kecil (dan emaknya donk 😏). Musim panas jadi rada malas lama-lama di dapur jadi pengennya sekali nguplek dapur bisa dibikin stok nya sekalian.

Si anak lagi bosan nuget ayam, jadi bikinlah kaki naga ini. Kali ini bikin yang versi udang-ayam sebab mau ngabisin udang frozen yang lumayan banyak. Biasanyanya sih bikin pakai daging ikan... kadang full ayam aja.

Oke deh.... cuss aja ya ke dapur.. keburu ngantuk ntar kebanyakan baca ya... hihihi 😃

Menjadi ± 30 kaki naga (tergantung besar/ kecil ngebentuknya ya)
  • 250 gr udang dingin
  • 250 gr daging ayam dingin, potong kecil-kecil
  • 4 siung bawang putih, haluskan/ parut
  • 70 gr putih telur (atau 1 telur utuh besar)
  • 80 gr tapioca atau pati kentang
  • @1 sdt garam dan gula 
  • 1 sdt kaldu bubuk (optional)
  • 1 sdt merica bubuk
  • 2 sdt saus tiram
  • 1 sdm minyak wijen
Untuk baluran:
  • 2 telur kocok lepas
  • tepung roti/ panko
Bahan lain:
  • minyak untuk menggoreng secukupnya
  • tusukan lolipop bambu/ tusakan sate

Cara memasak:

1) Proses daging ayam terlebih dahulu dengan food processor hingga halus. Lalu masukkan semua bahan keculai tapioka dan lanjutkan memproses hingga halus dan tercampur rata.
Terakhir masukkan tapioka/ pati kentang dan proses hingga tercampur rata.

2) pindahkan dalam mangkok lain. Jika ingin mengetes rasanya, ambil sedikit adonan dan goreng untuk dicicipi, tambahkab gula/ garam/ merica sesuai selera.

3) Panaskan kukusan dan olesi dengan minyak. Ambil adonan kaki naga (kurleb 1½ sdm atau sesuai selera besarnya) dan tusukan ke bambu. Basahi telapak tangan dengan sedikit minyak untuk mempermudah proses. Kukus kurang lebih 15 menit. Angkat dan biarkan dingin.

4) Panaskan minyak goreng secukupnya. Celupkan kaki naga ke dalam kocokan telur lalu gulingkan dalam tepung panko hingga rata. Goreng hingga merah keemasan.
Tips: Jika ingin menyimpan kaki naga ini, setelah dibalut panko kaki naga bisa disimpan dalam wadah kedap udara dan disimpan dalam frezeer/ lemari es. Cairkan hingga suhu ruang sebelum digoreng.

Selamat mencoba. Semoga bermanfaat.
