Cheese Stick

My friend was so generous lend me her pasta machine a week ago after we made Cheese Stick together at her house. unfortunately, we did not make lots of photos cause too busy (our first trial and directly made 2 batch recipes). and today, I made again but only one recipe and took some photographs. before I already made a promise to take step by step photos and please do forgive me, I forgot some steps :p

talking about this recipe, this savory snack is very cheesy and crunchy. you can not stop eat it until your jar is empty. i can not say it's easy to make, emmm...nope, it is easy but not simple, require more effort to do it. yet, the results are very good. it is worth enough, don't worry!
today, I made them with my dearest hubby and my daughter. thank you darling!!
well, the incredible recipe, I got it from my talented blogger friend Ine Sena @ Papua. I recommend you to visit her blog, full of drooling foods :D

Cheese Stick
source : Ine Sena @
bahan :
450 gr tepung terigu protein sedang / medium wheat flour/all purp flour (me : all flour using all purpose flour)
50 gr tepung terigu protein tinggi/ high wheat flour
200 gr tepung tapioka/ tapioka starch
25 gr tepung maizena/ corn starch or maizena
10 gr tepung santan instant (optional) / coconut milk powder
1/2 sdm baking powder / table spoon of baking powder
100 gr mentega / butter
250 gr keju parmesan/edam/cheddar parut / cheese : parmesan,edam,cheddar - shredded
1/2 sdm garam / tablespoon salt
2 butir telur, kocok lepas / eggs - beaten
300 ml air dingin / cold water
2 lt minyak goreng kualitas baik / oil for frying

cara membuat/ directions :
- panaskan minyak goreng dalam wajan dengan api sedang-kecil.
preheat the oil in frying pan - low until medium heat

- ayak semua bahan kering, lalu masukkan semua bahan lainnya kecuali air, aduk rata menggunakan ujung-ujung jari tangan.
sieve all the dry ingredients, mix in the other ingredients except water, using your finger tips combine all.

- tambahkan air sedikit demi sedikit, aduk hingga adonan menggumpal, jadi tidak usah terlalu lama diuleni.
pour in cold water gradually, mix until the dough gathered. you don't need to overmix them

- giling adonan sebagian-sebagian kecil dengan gilingan mie/pasta dengan ketebalan dari no. 1 hingga no. 4, potong-potong, lalu potong dengan gilingan untuk memotong kwetiaw.
with pasta machine, shape the dough, from no. 1 until no. 4 and then continue with big noodle shape.

- goreng hingga kuning keemasan.
fry until golden brown

*tips penting : agar minyak tidak berbusa, ketika akan menggiling adonan bila adonan terlihat agak lengket, gunakan tepung tapioka sesedikit mungkin. caranya, pulas setipis mungkin tepung tapioka dengan tangan di atas permukaan meja kerja kita, pipihkan adonan yang akan kita giling tempelkan di atas pulasan tepung tapioka tadi. lakukan yg sama dengan sisi lainnya. adonan siap digiling, usahakan jangan dipulas tepung tapioka lagi.

tips : try to use less tapioka starch when you are shapping, so that the oil will not so foamy. lining your working table with small amount of tapioka starch, flatten the dough and spread on the working table, do the same for the other side. then the dough ready to flatten and try not to line with more tapioka starch.

when frying, be carefull, do not put in to much dough, it was foamy and the oil spread out from the pan
