SPICY ROLLS ( POPIA PEDAS ) by Mas
- One pack of spring roll sheets ( I used the medium size )
- 1 egg ~ beaten OR form a glue paste using plain flour and water
Ingredients for sauce:
- 4 tbsp dried chilli paste
- 1 medium onion - ground
- 1 clove garlic - ground
- dried shrimps - optional
- salt to taste
- 1 cube anchovies stock
- 5 tbsp of sugar
- anchovies ~ cleaned and washed
- roasted peanuts ~ x add
- roasted sesame seeds ~ x add
Neatly roll each spring roll sheets, glue the ends with egg mixture or flour paste.
Using a scissor, cut each rolls oblique about 2inches long.
Deep fry in oil until light brown, remove and drain on paper towel.
Reduce oil, and saute the grounded paste and chilli untill fragrant. Add salt and anchovies stock cube, stir.
Add sugar and stir again, let the mixture thickens.
Turn off heat and put in the fried spring rolls, mix well evenly and add anchovies, peanuts and sesame seeds as desired.
Allow to cool and store into an airtight container. Happy Munching!!!!
