salivating over

“Keropok” is one of my favourite past-time foods. Whether it is “keropok lekor” or “keropok gonde”, they’ve never failed to satisfy my appetite. Probably I have eaten tonnes of this endemic food since I was introduced to this world. Such a simple ingredient of mainly fresh fish, sago and salt and probably sugar coz these people….errr my people are very well known for making the sugar industry a booming industry in Malaysia. In almost all of their cooking recipes, sugar will be one of the main ingredients. But so far, there is no scientific evident to link high occurence of diabetic patient among these kampung folks. Oh yes…it is also considered as one of the masterpieces, a signature food of Terengganu, of which is also my lovely home town.

I am not quite sure how this fascinating food comes to be so famous, but my theory is that the shape of it probably resemble something so synonymous to the man ego. I could be wrong. Men and equally ladies can become crazy over this food especially during the monsoon season when supply of fish is very limited.
Since this keropok is so well sought after, in Terengganu of course, it is not so surprisingly to find this dish almost in every marketplaces. But there are few local brandnames that have achived celebrities status. “Keropok Losong”, named after a place where the food was thought to be originated from, was one of the popular one.
Talking about food always made my mouth salivating. It also reminds me of my beautiful hometown. Time to pack and head back to my motherland.

  5. If you are referring to the famous one, of which “berlekor-lekor” also at your previous workplace, then I am about to lost my appetite.

  7. btw, only “ganu kite” will appreciate the intricate delicacies of this pastime food. many people try to plagiate this trade secret but I belive even with the simplest ingredient, the taste is astronomically different. some “keropok lekor” replica even taste and feel like a “selipar Jepun”. I belive, years of eating “budu” (another local delicacies) from my countrymen, has add in some special flavor to it.
