Odading a snack from Indonesia (bandung)

Odading made by twins

Odading a traditional snack from Indonesia.

Once again we post a recipe that you have to fried 🙂 . Our mother is originally from Bandung and every time we go there we always eat this snack called Odading. Its actually some kind of sweet bread. In the Netherlands we almost have a similar snack called “Oliebol”( but mostly we only eat oliebollen with the holidays and new year).  Odading has more this bread texture and we eat this through the whole year. Simple but very delicious!


– 2 eggs
– 600 gram flower
– 22 gram yeast
– 320 ml lukewarm water
– 250 gram sugar
– 1 teaspoon salt
– oil for frying


1. Whisk the eggs with a fork.
Put the yeast in the lukewarm water.
2. Transfer the lukewarm water with yeast, sugar, eggs, flower and salt  in a bowl and mix it together with a  spatula.
3. Put a towel on the bowl and let it rise for 1 hour till its doubled.
4. Lets fry’em up in oil, till its golden brown!

Bon Appetit 🙂

    • Hi Aaron! We haven’t heard about gulab jamun before. But we just saw some pictures..this indian dessert looks delicious! And indeed it looks a bit like Odading haha

      • It is quite common here in Indian restaurants and in India as well. It is fried gram flour dessert that is soaked in cardamom sugar. Very, very sweet and decadent. I saw once a bowl of ice cream with two gulabs. It was too much, but I ate it anyways!

      • We are both a sweet-tooth, so we cant wait to try this gulab jamun. And with ice-cream, wow that will be fantastic hihi. But a combination of these two must be VERY sweet. How did you felt afterwards eating this dessert haha?

  1. Ineke and Anneke: I love this recipe – it looks like something even I could make, a novice baker – and very delicious! How special that your mother has passed on her delicious heritage to you. It is interesting that The Netherlands has a similar snack to odading! 🙂 Best wishes – Shanna
