The Making of Keropok Lekor and The Coming 4th Bukit Jelutong Plant Exchange on 3rd December 2016




 *Sweep sweep cobweb* Aiyoyo...few weeks didn't blog what happened to blogspot ah? How come all the controls , dashboard etc all changed already.


Busy doing what ar...hmm...the usual lo...boiling Kdrama and Mainland drama. Finished "On The Way to Airport" and "Boss and Me". The former was good but not "wow" but the latter was really hilarious.

 Anyway, on top of boiling drama, Mamarazzi FB on how to make Keropok Lekor. Since the recipe seems simple enough..Mamarazzi immediately went to hunt for the necessary ingredients the next day.

Recipe  calls for Sardines fish and Sago Flour. Have to de-bone the fishes. Very tedious work😰 and not much meat .


 Blend the meat using a blender and add some iced water with a pinch of salt. 


 Then add some Sago flour to the fish paste mixture. According to the recipe, the portion is 2:1. (200g meat : 100g flour).

 After mixed everything evenly, it's time to rock 'n roll. 

 Rolled Keropok Lekor ready to go for a swim in the wok. 

 Nice hot bath.  It's cooked once it floated up .

Cooling on the tray before Papa eat. Usually Keropok Lekor are fried after this but Papa eats it as it it.

Papa said too chewy. Too much Sago flour. Mamarazzi posted up in FB and her friend told her to change to recipe to 6:3:1 (Sago Flour : Tapioca Flour : Wheat Flour). A friend made some keropok lekor using the improved recipe and found them just nice.

Conclusion to recipe....well....will not make unless desperate la. A lot of work and the total cost not really cheaper than buying ready made Keropok Lekor. The bright side is that the head and tail of the fish can be use by Mamarazzi to make FAA(fertiliser) for her plants.


Apart from trying out new recipe, she is also busy planting.  Seedlings and cups of plants are everywhere in the garden, under the trees and in the car porch.

Yup! preparing for the 4th Bukit Jelutong Plant Exchange.  It will take place next Saturday. Here is the details of venue and time :-

  5. Sago flour? All keropok lekor uses sago flour? That is great news!!! My girl is gluten-allergic...no more wheat flour (and pasta, pizzas, bread, burgers, cakes, kampua, kompia etc...etc...etc...) for her but sago flour is fine. Gotta tell her!!!

  15. That food looks delicious. I have to try it. Perhaps I will just use wheat initially instead of mixing all those flour together. And, I wish I was there to do some plant exchange with you. Have lots of fun :-)
