Assemble your ingredients as per the instructions above

 

 

Add a pinch of salt, a shake of white pepper and a pinch of MSG (optional) to the beaten eggs and stir.

 

 

Put 1 tablespoon of cooking oil in a fry pan and heat.

 

 

Add the beaten egg and cook until you have an omelet.

 

 

When the omelet is done remove and set aside. when it has cooled chop it finely into very small cubes.

 

 

Add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil to a small saucepan and heat

 

 

Add sweet bean sauce

 

 

Add hoisin sauce

 

 

Add 1 teaspoon of sugar

 

 

Cook for about 3 minutes and then pour into an earthen jar and set aside to serve with the popiah

 

 

Add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil to a fry pan and heat on medium

 

 

Add the shrimp and add 1 tablespoon of soya sauce

 

 

Add 1 teaspoon of sugar and cook for about three minutes. Remove prawns to a dish and when cooled slice in half lengthwise.

 

 

Add 5 tablespoons of cooking oil to a fry pan and heat on medium. Add the garlic and fry until fragrant.

 

 

Add the pork stock cube and break it up

 

 

Add salt

 

 

Add 1 teaspoon of sugar

 

 

Add the onion and fry for about a minute

 

 

Add the carrot and fry for about 2 minutes

 

 

Add the cabbage and stir well

 

 

Add oyster sauce

 

 

Add 1 tablespoon of  soya sauce

 

 

Add a shake of white pepper

 

 

Add the 5 spice powder

 

 

Mix 1 teaspoon of corn flour in 1 cup of water and add to the pan

 

 

Cover and cook for about 7 minutes

 

 

Remove the lid and cook until the mixture sticks together fairly well then add the sesame oil. Remove to a serving dish.

 

 

If your sping roll sheets are a bit dry you can steam them before serving. When you serve having a bottle of water with a spray top helps keep them from drying out as you eat.

 

 

Put the ingredients in serving dishes and arrange on the table

 

 

Now each person assembles their own popiah. First smear some of the sauce (from the earthenware jar) on to the spring roll. Then add ingredients as you please.

 

 

Roll the spring roll wrapper around the other ingredients

 

 

Munch away !
