(Indonesian Peanut Brittle)

Rempeyek (Indonesian Peanut Brittle) is crunchy snack can be made with all kinds of fillers. Besides peanuts a common favorite is rempeyek teri which uses tiny dried anchovies.

1 tsp coriander seeds, ground
1/2 cup rice flour
1 pinch salt
1 cup water
1 clove garlic,finely chopped
1/4 lb. roasted peanuts
2 cups oil (for deep frying)
1 Tbs. sambal ulek

  • Combine the coriander with the rice flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Slowly add water to create a runny batter. For spicy rempeyek, add sambal ulek.
  • Mix the garlic and peanuts into the batter.
  • Heat the oil in a wok for deep frying (see here). Using a large spoon or ladle, carefully pour enough batter into the oil so it spreads out in a thin layer about 3 inches wide. If it balls up then the oil isn't hot enough, or you may need to thin the batter with water.
  • Turn the rempeyek once after about 30 seconds. Fry for another 20 seconds before carefully removing with tongs.
  • Drain on paper towel. Sprinkle salt on the rempeyek and allow them to cool. Store in an airtight container.
