DIY Prawn and Peanut crackers

pp crackers packet

Prawn and Peanut crackers is a local snack that is a variant of the home made Malay keropok (crackers). It isn’t actually made with prawns (shrimp) but ikan bilis (a small indigenous fish fry that has been dried and salted). It’s just what we call these crackers (YMMV). The crackers are about the size of a 3 inch CD. pp crackers diy

The crackers are made by DIY (a small Kuching cottage industry) and retails for RM 1.30 at most coffee shops. One packet of the crackers contains about six pieces, which makes the price per cracker at slightly above 20 cents (MYR). The cracker usually has one intact fish fry and several peanuts embedded into the cracker itself.

This is what the crackers look like up close – the ikan bilis and peanuts is placed on the chilli infused batter base before the deep frying treatment, producing this effect. It’s a favorite snack in our office. The crackers taste like spicy keropok before the salty ikan bilis tang starts to shine through as the cracker is munched, with the experience ending on a nice aromatic roasted peanuts note.

It contains very basic ingredients, but it’s executed so well that the whole is better than the sum of its parts. It’s also home made, so that means no preservatives. 🙂

Make it more accessible to everyone else who may not agree with you? Youd get a lot more people behind this if you just stopped making general statements.

  10. Thank goodness for the E-cig!!! I have smoked regular cigarettes for 30 years and have never been able to quit. I have tried everything on the market: Chantex, nicotene patches, inhalers everything- without any luck. I did quit for 2 months before with patches but with e-cigs, I have been quit for 4 months with no interest in going back! I just hope the FDA leaves us alone because I use them as a replacement and they have to be alot better to utilize than regular cigarettes-health wise!!

  20. If SE was smart (and had a heart) they’d make this thing for every carrier. Take over Android, get buzz in the handheld arena again and take on Apple in a big way – don’t give this to AT&T and call it a day. I know SE hates CDMA but make it for Verizon and AT&T at the least, and Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile if you’re serious about this thing making an impact. It’s gorgeous and this is very exciting. The choice of touchpads instead of analog sticks is interesting. It could work, but odd since we know they are capable of thin nubs for sliders (Go).
