Perkedel, Potato Corn Beef Patty Recipe

Bergedil or Perkedel, depending on which country you're from, these potato patties are a popular side dish in Indonesian & Malay Cuisine. I’m a fan of these potato “croquettes” from young, often pairing them with Nasi Lemak (Coconut Rice) or Soto Ayam (Spicy Chicken Soup with Rice Cakes).
These potato patties are crispy on the outside & soft inside, really delicious. I like adding Corn Beef to my recipe but the meat is optional. You must try these if you haven’t & they’re not difficult to make at home.
You could also mould them into cartoon shapes for fussy kids to make a lunch box for them!

(Makes 6 Patties)

3 Potatoes
50g Corn Beef
1 Egg
1 bunch of Spring Onion (chopped)
Pinch of Salt & Pepper
2 tbsp Flour
Oil for frying

  1. Remove potato skin. Wash & cut into 4 parts. Microwave or steam still soft.
  2. Use a fork to mash the potato. Add seasonings & mix well.
  3. Separate Egg-yolk form white. Add Corn Beef, Spring Onions & yolk. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Mould into patties according to size preference. Heat oil. Lightly coat patties with flour & dip into egg-white before frying.
  5. Fry till crispy & golden brown & you’ll get your crispy yet soft & mushy Perkedil.
  6. To make cartoon shape, simple mould into the shape you desire in Step 4.
