Fresh, fluffy pancakes in the morning with the leftover berries from yesterday’s baking.
My parents do not like to compromise on food, so the missing fried garlic and shallots, slivers of cucumber, and firm tofu in this popiah dish was unusual. Maybe we were just too tired to go down the hill for the ingredients. Still, the dish is popular in this house, with a variety of ingredients assembled on-the-spot: lettuce, jicama, turnip, carrots, prawns, eggs, bean sprouts, cilantro, and my parents’ popiah sauce with plenty of chili and palm sugar (gula melaka).
A light, compact meal for dinner.
