  1. look yummy & mouth watering!! we have a more similar dish in Sri Lanka & we call it 'Chinese Rolls'...:)

  2. The rissoles look yummy. You have done it very neatly. You are very right, we share many recipes with our own culture by different names.

  3. They look like a cross between a crepe and a the flavor combination!

  4. I love pot pies and I know I would love this dish. I love the use of a crepe to hold it all together and that it's breaded and fried. Great dish! I agree with Amy, who commented above, we have a dish in Sri Lanka that we call Chinese rolls that uses the same crepe, breaded and fried method. Thanks for sharing this Indonesian dish!!

  5. This does sound a little like chicken pot pie, which I love, so I know I would like this!

  6. I have not heard about this risoles before though there's some similarities with fried popiah and spring rolls but you bet the outcome is nice and crunchy after the frying.

  7. wow... send me some..!! favorite snack during my brunch with hot tea.. ^,^

  8. Wow, these look great! My husband loves chicken pot pie, so this would be a great dinner item :)

  9. This looks so good! I bet the flavors are amazing!

  10. This is amazing! i love that you made the wrappers, too!

  11. Meuni rajin pisan euy! jadi inget si iyuk di rumah doyan banget bikin cemilan begini

  12. Love the addition of coconut milk to the pastry! Risoles remind me of spring rolls but now i know they r different! :)

    pake cabe rawit panas" enak nih :D

  16. Wow those looks so fun and tasty! And you're right it totally reminds me of chicken pot pie. Coincidentally, I like to use a dash of nutmeg in my pot pies so this is perfect.

  17. These look delicious! They remind me a little bit of quesadillas, which I love (but I always make the same boring ones, so this will be a great change). Thanks for sharing your recipe, and for the great step-by-step instructions and photos!
