Intro: Garlicky Soybean Chips
These Indonesian chips/crackers is known as Rempeyek. Commonly with roasted/fried peanuts or roasted/fried soybeans.
This time am using fresh boiled soybeans as I was making tempeh, and wanted to experiment. They turned out as good :)
Step 1: Ingredients and Method
100 grams boiled soybeans that are already at room temperature and no longer wet to the touch
100 grams rice flour
50 grams cornstarch
1 tsp garlic powder
2 generous pinches kaempfaria galanga (aromatic ginger) powder
5 dry kafir lime leaves, crushed (if you can get fresh lime leaves, would be extra wonderful!)
1/2 tsp store bought ready to use minced garlic
1/2 tbsp ground coriander
1/4 c coconut milk
a pinch of turmeric powder
salt to taste
Dry fry soybeans until just slightly browning, set aside
Mix flour and starch and spices and lime leaves
Stir in coconut milk and enough water so you would get batter that isn't thick and much thinner than pancake batter
Stir in soybeans
Step 2: Enjoy!
Heat enough cooking oil on medium high
Once oil is hot, spoon batter on the sides of the pan (a heaping tbsp or two each), and let it drip down to the oil (see picture)
Once batter is ready, they will fall off to the oil themselves
Fry until golden brown and crispy
Place fried chips on paper towel lined plate and serve as snacks!
By the way, these chips can be served with rice, or with rice + steamed veggies with peanut sauce YUMMO!
