The temptation is too great too resist. I couldn’t help it. After seeing two evil beings, Pontianak and Hantu Bungkus write up about their sinful indulgence where they had apom balik (crispy Malay pancakes), I knew I’m done for, and I must have some of my own.
Unfortunately for me though, I couldn’t find any apom balik and I was about to give up on my search when I saw this when I was having a date with my husband in Wangsa Walk, Wangsa Maju:
Hot&Roll… can you guess what they’re selling?
All sort of chappatis and roti canai rolls with fillings inside….nice….those savoury ones are promos… I decided to settle on their crispy, nutty rolls instead…it’s something like apom balik. 😛 Well, beggars can’t be choosers…I must have something that’s similar to apom balik if I can’t have the real stuff.
See… the batter… waiting for the fillings.
The guy was spreading peanut butter onto my modern apom balik.
Then he placed some crushed, crunchy peanuts onto it.
And the sinful, chocolate chips…imagine that melting in your mouth, along with the crunchy peanuts and the crispy skin. WOW!
Then the guy folded it…
And this is how it looks like after being folded.
Taste-wise? Very nice, with the crunchy, sugary peanuts and the melting chocolate chips mingling in my tongue. I still prefer the original, traditional apom balik though. 😀
