Bakwan Sayur Renyah (Crunchy Indonesian Vegetables Fritters)

Who doesn’t like deep fry snacks? Indonesia ?? is very popular for its crunchy fritters. When I was a kid,I liked to buy them a lot after school. The original version of these vegetables fritters are made of cabbage, carrots, and bean sprouts. I’m not a big fan of cabbage so I used green beans instead of cabbage. You can either use cabbage or green beans. Enjoy! ? Follow my Instagram @jenscookingdiary if you like my recipes ???
