Sosis solo

sosis solo


Sosis Solo has been known as the specialty snack from Solo, is made of chopped beef combined with spices wrapped in a thin egg crepes. It’s similar with rissoles but has different kind of filling. Some people said that sosis solo get influenced by sausage roll (Dutch food). The story comes when the colonial came to Indonesia, they ate sausage roll which has minced beef inside wrap with pastry. Because it’s difficult for local people to get sausage roll and of course it’s expensive as well then they come with their creativity try to make food that is similar with sausage roll. They change pastry with the mixture of flour, egg and water. They still used minced beef for the filling but in a simple way and using small amount to reduce the cost. And the most important is the taste be adapted to our local taste. And since that time sosis solo becoming popular. You could easily find it in the market.

Kolak Labu Pisang

This time, a dear friend of mine who is also one of the administrator of idfb (Indonesian Food Blogger), Elsye Suranto,  the author of Sarang Japati agreed to be a guest writer on my blog. Let me introduce you with Elsye, tough mom with two homeschooling kids. While she’s busy with her job in the office and idfb, she’s still got time to cook for the family. And she’s got a good eye in her photography work.

Don’t forget to visit her blog, you’ll be amaze with it.



Walaupun Ramadhan sudah lewat tapi beberapa hari lalu salah satu teman membagikan labu dari kebunnya sendiri. Lumayan besar dan saya pun kebingungan untuk mengkaryakan. Biasanya bila Ramadhan tiba berbagai macam kolak sudah ada di daftar menu bulan itu. Walau sebenarnya bisa membeli, tapi ada kalanya saya lebih suka membuat sendiri.

Nah karena saya masih punya banyak stok labu, terpikir untuk membuat kolak sederhana campuran labu dan pisang. Sepertinya tak perlu susah mencari bahan lainnya. Gampang pula proses membuatnya.



Kolak Labu Pisang
Bahan :
1/4 buah labu kuning atau sesuai selera
3 buah Pisang raja
4 gundu gula merah
100 gr gula pasir
Sejumput garam
Daun pandan
550 ml air (sesuai selera)

Cara Membuat :
1. Potong-potong labu berbentuk kotak
2. Potong pisang serong
3. Rebus air bersama gula dan garam plus masukan dan pandan
4. Masukan labu kemudian pisang
5. Rebus sampai matang, cicipi
6. Siap dihidangkan

Walau cukup sederhana, kolak pisang labu ini enak dinikmati dengan tambahan es batu.
