Perkedel Panggang - Oven Baked Potato Fritters

I am a huge fan of perkedel but I don’t make them often enough since I kind of hate deep frying. So I tried to come up with a way to bypass deep frying. In the past, I have successfully make Japanese croquette with an oven, so I applied the same principle in this recipe and come up with a fool proof way to make perkedel with oven and I think it is a huge success. From now on, I can avoid deep frying when I crave for perkedel, and I can easily double or triple the batch and it will take the same amount of time since I just put everything in the oven and they will all be done in the same time. Win!

    To consume less oil one can boil the potatoes first.

  • Mark says:

    Would these be served with any kind of sauce or as is? They sound delicious! Look forward to trying them. :)

      Hi Mark, they are good as is, but we love to have them with sambal terasi or sambal bajak, and definitely a must when making soto.
