Nyonya Style Popiah

Mar 29, 2009

In conjunction to Qing Ming, mum has cooked my favourite Nyonya Popiah for the prayer to our ancestors. This dish looks simple but in actual fact, the preparation is not an easy one. Lets see what are the ingredients needed.

The making of the Popiah skin (crepe). You need lots of patience when making this crepe. Haha... Only my Mum has this patience to do so. That's why I always appreciate her efforts in making this skin - Just for me! Thanks Mi!

The sweet sauce which was gotten from the market. The actual Nyonya sweet sauce supposed to be steam version. I recalled my auntie did it before.

The garlic chili.

The shredded turnip / Yam Beans which fried with minced pork and prawns.

The lettuce & coriander leaves.

Shredded cucumber.

Beansprouts. I remembered that when I was young, my grandmother asked me to tail the beansprouts whenever they wanna make Popiah. I disliked this assigned task because it was boring!

The finely cut omelettes.

The fishcake.

All ingredients are ready to be assembled.

See! My nicely wrapped Popiah! I can't wait to put you into my mouth! Muahaha...

It is so juicy and delicious! I had a total of 6 popiah for today! BB said our baby must be complaining inside the womb. Haha...

Mum, thanks a lot in making this Nyonya Popiah for me.
