Weekly Photo Challenge : My Interpretation of Fray

Honestly, it was hard to interpret the meaning of ‘fray’, as I rarely use this word. In bahasa Indonesia it means ‘percekcokan’, ‘kehebohan’ and many more…but for this case, I choose the ‘kehebohan’ or excitement. The exictement here when I made cassava balls called Gethuk. As a traditional Javanese cuisine, I sometimes make it when I was at home. There are many variations of gethuk and I tried to mix it with cheese as well as food colouring. Many colours and so brightly till people were afraid to eat it as it’s suspicious for being given textile colouring. Hahahaha… No way! What I made here were natural, just I added the colouring too much. Rainbow cassava balls or Gethuk pelangi and I serve it with skewer and shredded coconut.

That’s fray, right? because it excites everyone. Hehehe

And the colours were fighting each other (I ever posted it, but I have another perspective here)

    Very creative interpretation for thsi challenge, Nono. Love it and I feel like having a stick of gethuk right now. Are they cheese balls? I presume they taste sweet…

    1. Mabel, these are modern gethuk, because the original one is only made of mashed cooked cassava and brown sugar, and colorless. But for modern one, many people add some cheese and vanilla or even chocolate for improving its taste.

      You’re correct, it’s sweet, but not too sweet. 🙂

      1. Mabel Kwong says:

        That is a great explanation. The original ones sound very, very sweet. But coloured food is always fun to eat 🙂

      2. Yes, is it ‘heavy’ snack, right? It can be eaten as breakfast or teatime. I still remember that my late grandpa sometimes had gethuk and tea/coffee for afternoon tea. But also fried cassava and boiled yam/taro

    Gak bisa disalahkan kalau orang mengira itu gak pakai pewarna makanan karena warnanya yang ngejreng begitu, tetapi di foto memang jadi lebih menarik sih 🙂

    1. Maklum, kebanyakan ngasih pewarnanya. Yang jingga saya pakai sari jeruk, sedang yg merah pakai pencitarasa stroberi. Hehehehee..

    I think for this food gethuk will be better if don’t using any coloring, it will be healthy and give us a feel secure when we eating it especially for children.how about you ? Are you agree with me?

    1. If the coloring is natural, why not? You can get yellow from turmeric, red from strawberry, green from pandan and blue from blueberry.

      1. Pardi says:

        What’s Tumeric Pak? Swear I still don’t know and this’s the first i heard it. What do you mean kunir Pak? Please more explain.

      2. Pardi says:

        Pak Pak could you pls let me know how to cook and made gethuk one by one, step by step?pls share the way by simple words

      3. Easy right?
        Just cook the cassava until smooth. Mix it with sugar or brown sugar and some vanilla if you need it. Do not forget to mash it while it’s still hot. Done.

      4. Pardi says:
