I kept on walking until my eyes caught the Lingham's chili sauce. I could not believe this. I bought 2 bottles for now. I kept on walking hoping to see kipas udang soy sauce by any chance. But hopeless.
I bought kohlrabi, my favorite bulb that has mild cabbage taste since they are all look very fresh.
I also buy popiah basah wrapper and kuih bom. The filling of the kuih bom ( the ball with sesame seeds) is mung bean paste. They are not too sweet but good enough to my taste.
So, for my dinner today, I assembled a simple popiah basah.
1 kohlrabi (julianned)
1 stick of carrot (julianned)
1 cup of beans sprout.
3 tablespoon Lingham's Chilli Sauce
1/2 teaspoon oyster sauce
1/2 teaspoon dark soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon ketchup
Mix all the ingredients for the sauce. Taste to your liking. Lingham's chilli sauce is very hot for me. That is why I added ketchup a little bit.
In a pot, boil water and add salt. Blanch kohlrabi, and carrot for about 3 minutes. Toss and put aside. Blanch beans sprout for 1 minute. Toss and combine with the rest of the filling.
Spread about 1/2 teaspoon of the sauce thinly on the wrapper. Put a tablespoon of the filling at the edge and roll one time, then fold on both side first before rolling the rest of the wrapper.
