Martabak is an Indonesian street food popular in Java. It seems to have originated from the Arabian “mutabbaq” (Arabic for folded), a stuffed pancake. Seasoned beef and onions are wrapped in egg roll wrappers or thin pancakes and fried until golden. They are often served with Kecap Manis. Not very Indonesian, but Chad liked his with sweet chili sauce.
There is also a sweet type of Martabak called Martabak Manis, a thick pancake folded around chocolate and cheese. This one is now on my list of things to make someday.
These freeze well if you wanted to double the batch for future use. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet after they are completely cooled from frying. Once frozen, they can be placed in a large bag. Place in refrigerator for a couple hours to thaw, then bake in 375 degree F oven for about 10 minutes or heated through.
