Perkedel is a popular Indonesian dish that consists of small, fried potato patties. The dish is typically made by combining mashed potatoes with a variety of ingredients such as chopped onions, garlic, eggs, and flour or breadcrumbs to help bind the mixture together. Other ingredients that can be added to perkedel include chopped vegetables such as carrots or green beans, and herbs such as coriander or parsley.
Once the ingredients are mixed together, small patties are formed and then deep-fried until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside. Perkedel can be served as a snack or side dish, and is often accompanied by a dipping sauce, such as a spicy sambal or a sweet and sour sauce. It is a versatile dish that can be adapted to suit different tastes and dietary requirements, and is enjoyed by many Indonesians as a comfort food.
