Cilok, short for aci dicolok, is a chewy snack made from tapioca flour. Goang, on the other hand, means floating in boiling water. With this journal article, you will learn how to make this delicious snack in the comfort of your own home. Let’s get started!
Before we start making the cilok, let’s prepare the ingredients first. Here are the ingredients that you need:
|100 grams of tapioca flour||1 egg|
|50 grams of minced meat (chicken or beef)||1 tablespoon of garlic powder|
|1 tablespoon of salt||1 teaspoon of white pepper powder|
|1 tablespoon of soy sauce||1 tablespoon of vegetable oil|
|250 ml of water|
Step 1: Preparing the Dough
The first step is to prepare the dough for the cilok. In a mixing bowl, combine the tapioca flour, garlic powder, salt, and white pepper powder. Mix well.
Then, pour in the water while continuously mixing the ingredients. Mix until a smooth dough is formed.
Add the minced meat, egg, soy sauce, and vegetable oil. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
Step 2: Making the Cilok
Now that the dough is ready, it’s time to make the cilok. Fill a pot with water and bring it to a boil.
Take a small portion of the dough and form it into a ball using your hands. Flatten the ball slightly and then drop it into the boiling water.
Repeat the process until you have used up all the dough. Let the cilok cook for about 5 minutes or until they float to the surface.
Step 3: Serving the Cilok Goang
Once the cilok are cooked, remove them from the pot using a slotted spoon and place them on a serving plate.
If you want to add some flavor to the cilok, you can make a dipping sauce. Mix sweet soy sauce, chopped bird’s eye chili, and a squeeze of lime juice.
You can also serve the cilok with tomato sauce or chili sauce.
