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!
