Festival favourite Babi&Co. doesn’t have a permanent home yet, so this catering company re-creates traditional Indonesian street foods using fresh and local ingredients at pop-up events. Their addictive Perkedel Jagung corn fritters are packed with garlicky flavour.

Prep time: 15 minutes

Whisk corn, eggs, green onion, and garlic in a bowl.

Mix flour, rice flour, baking powder, curry powder, salt and pepper in a separate bowl.
