Tafu Berontak (Deep fried Stuffed Tofu Puff with Cabbage) 包菜酿豆卜

I am almost forgotten to share with you this recipe which I learnt from a pakcik (uncle) during Bali trip. This deep fried stuffed tofu puff is one of the item from "gorengang"- it means fried things in Indonesia which cover wide range of crispy goodies, e.g pisang goring (fried banana), ubi goring (fried sweet potato), and etc...

All ingredients used are normal, but we like a special aroma which come from adding the coriander powder..
