Deep-Fried Cempedak Fritters


Have you seen this type of fruit before? Well, this is an exotic fruit called Cempedak. It’s popular in Southeast Asia, particularly in Malaysia. The size of the Cempedak fruit is much smaller than the more well known Jackfruit. The texture of the Cempedak flesh is soft, sweet, and has a strong aroma. They can be eaten fresh; but, they tastes much better in fritters. Deep-fried Cempedak Fritters are commonly sold in the streets of Malaysia.
