Here's an old favourite snack called Cucur Jawa, cucur basically means fritters and Jawa is Javanese. It's a dish from the Island of Java, I can safely assume from the name. The Javanese came over to Malaysia or what was Tanah Melayu (the Land of the Malays) as early as the 7th century, you can read about this here . My late father loved this dish, maybe it had something to do with his Indonesian roots, although his ancestors were from the Acheh Islands not Java.
Regardless of its origin, this dish has become part of the Malaysian fabric of great comfort food. I am just happy to have been blessed with a recipe that literally landed on my lap yesterday, I just had to try it when I saw how easy it was.
Great snack for afternoon tea and we actually dip this in our hot tea or coffee. Enjoy!!
