Sambal Goreng Printil (Spicy Spiced Meatballs)

Once again, weird name for a yummy food from Indonesia. And again, I have no idea why they named this food with such name ๐Ÿ˜€ย They do have lots of food with weird names in Indonesia, for some reasons and most of them just don’t make any sense.

Hubby likes this too, so I like to make this as my daily menu at home. Because I always feel selfish (sometimes) that I always cook what I want to eat. And he never rarely asked me to cook something for him. He’s a really good guy, my man ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, I have news. I finally decided to give up the whole cupcake contest thing. Don’t ask me the reason, I just think it’s a stupid contest and very unfair. So, maybe I should join “real” cake contest with professional juries. That way I won’t be annoyed if I lost ๐Ÿ˜›

Nothing much apart from that. Really “GOOD” thing to start my day today, eh?

Oh well, just let me share the recipe now ๐Ÿ™‚


500g minced beef

2 tbsp bread crumbs

1 egg

1 tbsp AP flour

Chili (up to your taste)

200 ml coconut milk

3 cloves of garlic

1 small red onion

1 lemon grass

1 cm galangal

1 bay leave

2 candle nuts

1 tomato (wedged)

Salt and pepper


How to:

– Mix meat, bread crumbs, egg, flour and salt and pepper. Make into small balls.

– Cook in a big pan with medium heat.

– Mean while, blitz garlic, onion, candle nuts and chili into smooth paste.

– Saute the paste until fragrance, add galangal, lemon grass and bay leave. Saute for another 1 minutes. Then add coconut milk and tomato wedges.

– Add in the balls. Add salt and pepper. Cook until the coconut milk evaporated.



  1. Fantastic – what incredible sounding meatballs. They are unlike any I’ve ever seen before too – how interesting ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for posting this.

      Yes, slightly different meatballs. You eat it with warm rice. Really nice ^^

  2. Hi Ridha!

    Yum!! If I had a kitchen now (living in Bali), I’d likely be trying out a few of your recipes – especially these meatballs, but all some ayam and desserts.. though I have to admit I’d pass on the durian pancakes; I simply can’t convince my nostrils and tastebuds to develop a craving for that fruit ๐Ÿ™‚

    Really nice photos.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog too.

    • Mrs. D says

      Oooooh lucky you. Actually I’ve never been to Bali before (not planning to go there either). I dunno why, why lots of people wants to see Bali, I prefer to go somewhere else ๐Ÿ˜€
      My hubby also don’t like the smell and the texture of durian. But I love it! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Photos are taken by my hubby, so I’ll pass the credit to him ๐Ÿ™‚

A nice comment will make my day ^^
