I was craving for some fried popiah the other day, and seeing that I have some popiah skin in the fridge, I decided that some fried popiah will just do for my tea break snacks. Be forewarned, though, my popiah is not your ordinary popiah where the fillings is made of cucumber, turnips or even shredded carrot. My Popiah is the lazy people’s popiah. The fillings is made fromÂ canned sardines. 😀
1 can of sardines/mackerel in tomato sauce
1 chilli, sliced
1 shallot/Bombay onions, sliced
A bit of lime juice/a sprinkle of salt
Here’s how you do it:
Prepare the fillings by dumping the content of the can into a small bowl and mash the sardines/mackerel. Mix the mashed sardines/mackerel with sliced onion/shallotsÂ and the thinly sliced chillies along with a bit of lime juice/a sprinkle of salt. Mix well.
Wrap up the fillings with the popiah sheets and deep fry them for about 5 minutes or til golden brown.
And serve with your favourite sauce.
