Balinese Cooking

As I mentioned earlier….last month myself & 4 girlfriends went for a wonderful mini escape in Bali. Some shopping, chill out time with friends, & definitely cooking classes were on our agendas.

So here is a couple of recipes we enjoyed cooking – slightly modified by me!! With all the coconut….you’ll be fighting off possible infections, whilst aiding to absorb nutrients from your food…& it’s more likely to burned off as fuel than stored as fat!


Chicken Sate Lilit Bali (Balinese wrapped around satay stick)

Serves 3-4


  • 250g chicken mince meat (or turkey)
  • 1/2C grated coconut
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1-2 chillies
  • equivalent to 2 tsp Coconut sugar (or they use Palm sugar)
  • 1 tsp shrimp paste (or fish sauce, as I only had)
  • 1 finger length galangal (or ginger)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  1. Smash with mortar and pestle the chillies, garlic, sugar, paste/sauce & galangal.
  2. Mix this all in with the mince meat, lemon juice & half the grated coconut.
  3. Divide into oval balls & mould around popsticks/thick skewers.
  4. Roll each into the rest of the grated coconut.
  5. Grill sate until they turn brown & cooked through.

These are AMAZING….not your normal sate….apparently they are only eaten on special occasions. With NO peanut sauce in site!!!   😉

Perkedel Jagung (Mashed Corn Ball/Fritter)

Serves 3-4


  • x2 whole sweet corn cobs with kernels cut off & smashed with mortar & pestle (or a tin of creamed corn)
  • 2 sticks celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3-1/2C Coconut flour (they used normal plain flour)
  • pinch Himalayan Pink salt
Smashed together in mortar & pestle:
  • 2tsp Coconut sugar (or Palm sugar)
  • Coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1-2 chillies
  • 2 Kaffir Lime leaves, roughly chopped


  1. Mix sweet corn kernels, egg, celery, salt & smashed ingredients thoroughly.
  2. Mix in the flour, add a little water if needed – mix should be semi-formed.
  3. Heat wok with vegetable oil of choice & form fritter with large spoons. Shallow fry till golden brown. Drain on paper towel before serving.
