Lately people from Bandung has been innovating fried tapioca flour with a variety of flavors. They fill the fried tapioca flour with chicken, beef, sausages, meatballs, cheese, etc. But in this recipe we are not fill it with anything, just original cireng.

We like fried tapioca flour so much because the texture is so chewy and tasteful. We think fried tapioca flour is suitable for afternoon snack. Some people eat it for breakfast. Basically we can eat fried tapioca flour any time.
