Flour Fritter a.k.a. Cekodok

How can you not love cekodok (che-core-dock)? Even my kwailo other half loves it. Its easy & quick to make since the basic ingredient are flour, egg, salt & cold water and delicious. The funny thing is he calls it cekodos since according to him, there's more than one (plural) thus the 's'. Hahahha.

When I make cekodok, I usually add some chopped onion and once in a while I add some small anchovies or chopped prawn/shrimp. The reason why I said 'small' is because he insisted that he doenst like anchovies nor shrimp/seafood. But as proven by the number of times that I made cekodok with anchovies or shrimp in it and he still devour them, i know its not true. :P (Note: But please dont do this at home with someone who's allergic to seafood ok?)

Flour Fritter / Cekodok


1.5 cups multi-purpose flour (dont use self-raising flour)
1 egg
1/4 onion - finely chopped (optional)
5-6 shrimp - finely chopped (optiona)
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold water

Vege oil for deep frying

1. In a deep frying pan, heat the oil on medium high

2. Mix all the ingredients then only you add the water to form a batter.

3. Using a tablespoon, scoop & drop into the oil. Flip them once or twice until golden brown. (be careful when frying because sometimes they tend to splatter)

4. Repeat no.3 until all the batter are used.

You can eat it on its own or with ketchup or sweet chili sauce. I like having mine with Lingham chili sauce. ;)

I totally love fried flour hehehee! I could eat just the flour coating of KFC chicken, minus the meat i MUST love your cekodoks

Pak Idrus said...

Lady, Ha! Ha!, Cekodok, served hot with that chilly sauce. Heaven!!. Indeed one of my favorite. Now Ababi come with the instant one whch is as good. We brought a few pack to Boston where we are living now. Senang, campur air and you are done.

I believe this cekodok has been around since our grands days in eon years ago. Perhaps when wheat flour was introduced to the society.

Have a nice day. Take care.

haha Rita, ur so like my hubby. Before he discovers there's popcorn chicken at kfc, he'd buy the regular pieces and eat all the crust/skin and leave the meat for me. The prob is, i dont like too much of meat either! I like the bones. lol.

Pak Idrus, my friend gave me the instant cekodok ikan bilis. Its not too bad but i stil prefer mine. lol. Cekodok is such a god-send.

Hi there!

Just wanna drop by and say hi.

A little trick for you to get a batch of crispy cekodok though is...

... to add a dash of hot boiling water or hot oil.

Sedap! :)

Salt & Turmeric said...

hi scarred soul. thanks for visiting. did u mean add the boiling water to the batter? i used cold water to make it softer.

When I prepare cekodok ikan bilis, I don't put eggs in it, but I add in baking powder. Kadang-kadang cheating, kalau malas tumbuk ikan bilis, I chuck in ikan bilis cube! Hehehe...that's my malas version la... Lepas tu letak bawang lelebih, cicah dengan sos cili Lingam. Mak ai....bestnya!
