Harry Bond Junior, a Dutch guy who lives in Indonesia, earned some recognition after he posted a cooking video featuring himself on the popular Indonesian discussion forum Kaskus.

Although the original post was made months ago in February, the thread has remained popular to this day, accumulating over 10,000 Indonesian netizen comments spanning over 500 pages. In fact, just yesterday, the original thread reached its maximum size of 10,000 comments and a new “Part 2” discussion thread had to be opened for netizens to continue commenting.

From Kaskus:

Crazy Bule Cooks Corned Beef Egg Fried Indoomie – HarMieGoBalls

A mixture of Indomie [instant noodles], corned beef, cheese, eggs and flour can be made into “HarMieGo Balls”.

First, you need to boil the Indomie instant noodles. Then you can start making a separate dough which consists of several eggs, flour and Indomie seasonings. Discard the boiling water after the noodles have been cooked and place them together with the dough. Mix them well.

Cut the cheese.

Heat the cooking oil until it becomes very hot.

Now you can take some of the instant noodles, put some cheese and corned beef at its center. Add a bit more of noodles and shape the mixture into a ball. We are then ready to dip the first HarMieGoBalls into a very hot cooking oil. Depending on your preference, you can fry the ball until it becomes crispy (beige) or turns golden in color.

Finished cooking? Now you can add chili sauce/mayonnaise/tomato ketchup. Enjoy your food! Bon Appetit.

Harry’s HarMieGo Balls (Harry’s Noodles Fried Balls) ingredients:
