Recipe Vegetable Popia Wraps
Remember the time when I was away for 3 no. 96 hours, that's 4 days! I cooked two meals! I mean, 2 dishes, Vegetable Popia and Garlic Breads! ^^

Here I'll show you super simple instructions on what I did to make that Vegetable Popia, or so I call it by that name. xD I was thinking of eating chopped vegetables like carrots, and that purple lettuce mom recently bought fresh from the market that time then wrap them around in a popia wrap.


I found carrots, purple lettuce and two types of scallions (big and small). So I chopped them first and put them nicely on a plate. No need for that nicey-nicey here, you'll mix them up later on anyway.

I thought, how to make them stay together when cooking later on? Surely they need something to be held on together and not separate when I wrap them.

So I decided to use Cucur Tepung Udang Adabi (Adabi Shrimp Ball Flour Mix) as the base, then put all the vegetables into the mixing bowl.

Seasoning was just a teaspoon of Maggi chicken stock, vegetable seasoning and mom's Himalayan salt.

Here comes the long, boring part. Putting them into the popia wraps. I suggest you just roll the bater into a ball then fry them. Of course, your bater has to be more of a solid state instead of a liquid state before mixing the veggies together.

In my case here, I wanted them to be in a wrap.

How to Fold

Put the bater in a vertical position like the above, fold the above and below fold first then the sides of the popia. Easy now, take it easy, don't rush. Or you'll end up having a lump of something that looks like a tissue soaked with bad milk.

When you're done, stick a fork on each of them to make holes, so that the insides will sure to be baked and not come out raw.

I baked them, about a 3/4 of the batch. I let them bake for about 20 minutes, medium heat. Like how you bake cookies that? I greased the pan with olive oil. Just a bit, like a teaspoon of it, a bit more smaller.

Tadaaaaaa! xD It's absolutely delicious! I wish I had some prawns to go with this, it would've been magnificent!


I put only 1 tsp of chicken stock, some vegetable seasoning and a pinch of salt. It tasted like I didn't put anything at all! I only taste the crunchy lettuce, carrot and slight hint of the scallion. It made everything so tasty and fresh! Maybe I should've put more salt in it. xD

The fried version of this is phenomenal! Crunchy popia wraps to go with the cucur udang with the scallion slightly burnt, is soooo tasty! I would definitely suggest you to cook it, if you want the more delicious part. Of course, the healthy choice would be to bake it, with little oil. =)

Your choice!

Shine on,
