Comro (Fried Indonesian Cassava Fritters)

{{totalReview}}
Short for ‘oncom dijero’ or oncom on the inside, Comro is a popular snack from West Java and commonly sold with other Indonesian fried fritters. Wrapped in a mix of grated cassava and coconut with a savory, fermented oncom filling, Comro is the epitome of crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. This bite-sized treat is best eaten hot, especially during afternoon tea.
