Risole Florentine

Risole is a popular appetizer in Indonesia that looks similar to spring rolls but has a different taste. The name ‘Risole’ came from the Portuguese rissole, a small croquette, enclosed in pastry or rolled in breadcrumbs, baked or deep fried. This is a savoury version and is served as an entrée or side dish.
