Keropok Lekor

Keropok Lekor (Lekor Fish Cracker) is one of the popular traditional Malay snack from Trengganu. The keropok is made of fish meat paste mixed with sago flour and salt. Come in two different form ~ the longer chewy form and the thinner crispy form. Best to eat when still hot, and nicer even when dipped in the chillie sauce. This is widely available in the Malay foodstall including night market. Normally sold at RM 1 for 6 pieces. Something unhealthy but nice to eat :D Somehow, unhealthy food are always nice... :(

I feed my dog some as well, and he likes it. I have taken few photo shoots of him eating the keropok. I like seeing how he holds and eats the keropok. I will upload the photos later on tonight and will post the picture later on :)

Andy,
I have never tasted the Miri Keropok Lekor, so I dunno how the one in Miri tasted like :)
I didn't see these in my good old quite hometown in Sarikei.

Alicia said...

keropok lekor! nice lei.. terengganu has got the best keropok lekor.. :)

Chen said...

Alicia,
I remember steaming the fresh lekor during my uni time :D
The taste... not bad either :)

Jellyfish said...

er...
y named lekor? not ekor? cos it look like ekor
kekekekke....

Cynthia said...

i like the crunchy edges only, if the middle part is too meaty, i think it is less tasty =)

Chen said...

Jellyfish,
I have no idea :D
Might be the name ekor doesn't sound nice, so they add a "L" infront to made it sound nicer?
ooops, I'm talking craps... :P

Cynthia,
I enjoy both the crunchy part and the chewy part :P

Kampungkai said...

Chen said...

kampungkai,
Hehehe..
My dog's principle is .. Whatever is his, is his..
He will never share his food with others :P
I don't know how to change his thinking :)

keropok lekor, i miss it so much! i remember last time there was a malay stall selling this kueh downstair of my former office, i always go down to grab some fresh and hot and crispy keropok! and not forgotten their chilli..haha..

but after eaten, cannot kiss kiss..hahaha...

and yes, terengganu have the best keropok lekor, can buy the raw one and cut then fry it by ourself at home!

Chen said...

carcar,
hot and crispy keropok lekor? That is yummy..
especially when the keropok is just out of the kuali :D

LOL at the kiss kiss part :P

I even steam the raw keropok before :) Eat together with chilli sauce.
Not bad :) And it is definitely more healthy :D
