Batang Buruk Sabah - Sabah MFF #4

Crunchy addictive snacks from Sabah.

Batang buruk is also found in Johor and is one of Johor's specialties, but.... Sabah's version is a much simpler one. Using store bought spring roll wrappers, and allowing the use of dustings like powdered cereal,, milk powders or even malted powders, it is a easy to do snack that can be made in a jiffy. The Johor way that involved forming the crust in tube like shapes around papaya petioles requires more work and later stuffed with fillings instead of just dusting.

I made this using leftover spring roll wrappers from Chinese New Year and also milk powder samples, LOL.
Getting the idea of a quick dusting from McD, I utilized a paper bag :-)

Batang buruk Sabah
Reference: Siti Sana Sini 

10 pcs spring roll wrapper (7.5inch square)
Egg white for brushing
2 Tbsp milk powder
2 Tbsp Toasted mung bean powder / finely ground Nestum Cereal*
2 Tbsp icing sugar

1. Roll each spring roll wrapper and seal the ends with egg white.
2. Snip the rolls diagonally.
3. Deep fry on medium heat until they are crispy and slightly golden. Drain away the oil on paper towels.
4. Put the fried rolls into a paper bag.
5. Mix all the dusting together and pour them into the bag.
6. Seal the bag and shake shake shake gently. Ready to chomp!

*Can add horlicks as well
** Toasted mung bean powder can be bought, Baba's brand, or get it from your baking supplies shop.
