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 :-)
