Afternoon Snack & Drink

This was my Saturday – afternoon drink after a very hot and tiring day. A mix of Lychee, Grape Snapple, soda water, thin sliced lemon and ice cube. It’s so fresh and it can recall my good mood :-D. Bali was so hot last Saturday. I had a lunch out with My Pi at our fave chicken soup (soto ayam) stall in Kuta before going to the bookshop. We continued to do grocery shop afterward because it’s in the same shopping area and today’s shopping was enough to make us so exhausted.

The afternoon refreshing drink was accompanied by some rolls of traditional snacks. It’s called Sosis Solo. Sosis is the word for ‘sausage’ in Indonesia and Solo is the name of a town in Central Java. Yes, this snack is originally from Solo. There are some version of Sosis Solo. The fried one, the steamed one, the one with coconut milk and I guessed some more recipe versions. The one I always had when I live together with my housemate from Solo is the steamed one. Thanks Nina for the recipe, easy and healthy! 🙂


Skin sheets:

5 Eggs, lightly beaten
100 ml coconut milk
3 tablespoon all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of salt
Oil for frying

250 gr of Ground beef
half of onion or the equal amount of shallots, chopped
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
3-4 tablespoon sweet soy sauce (ketjap manis)
*Optional – Chopped Spring Onion


1. Mix well all ingredients for skin sheet. Heat the flat (-+24cm) frying pan over low heat. The pan diameter will give effect to the size of the roll. The wider the skin, the longer the roll. Brush the pan surface with oil, just to avoid the skin mix to stick on to the pan. Pour in 3-4 table spoon of the mix to the hot pan. Spread it evenly on the pan surface. Wait until the other side is cooked and flip it over to cook the other side. This mix will create approx. 15 sheets of skin.

2. Mix all the filling ingredients well. Fill in the skin with this filling mix and wrap it as spring roll. Then put them all in the steamer and steam for approx. 30 minutes or until done.
