Pronunciation: poh-piah

A Fujian/Chaozhou-style fresh spring roll. The filling is made mainly from finely julienned turnips and bamboo shoots fried with garlic and mashed fermented beans and left to simmer in a pot. Other ingredients include bean sprouts, lettuce, grated carrots, slices of Chinese sausages, thinly sliced fried tofu, chopped peanuts, fried shallots, shrimps and shredded omelette. The filling is then heaped onto the centre of the round wheat-flour skin with a paste of garlic, chilli and sweet caramel sauce. The stuffing is then rolled into a log and sliced into smaller bite-size pieces.


The perfect popiah should have just enough of all the different ingredients so that you will have a little of everything in your mouth at the same time.
