Cireng is a short name of Aci Goreng, which means Fried Aci (Kanji). Actually I'm still a little bit confused which one Aci (Kanji) is. Is it Tapioca or Sagoo starch. In this recipe, I used Tapioca for 2 reasons. First is because actually both starch are similiar. And second one is because that's the only starch I have in my kitchen... ;-p
In Indonesia, we can find this fried snacks easily in 'Tukang Gorengan' (I dont know how to translate it to English, sorry ;-p). Thats how we call someone who sells Fried Snacks in Indonesia. If you want to know the taste of this Cireng... well, just imagine how it will be when you bite a rubber... ;-p. I mean, the food is very elastic, especially when it is alerday cold. So eat them when they are stilll hot... By the way, I really enjoy chewing it when it's cold.. hehehe
