Pork Rind

What are these? Some sort of yummy crackers/keropok?

Mmmmm..... Puffy, Crunchy & Crispy...

It's none other than the deep fried pork skin @ pork rinds
(aka KeroPorkTM) Thanks to Winn for the excellent idea.

Yummy when served with vinegar & chilli dip (give the sour & spicy urmphhh). This is the first time I ate such food stuff. Am I suaku?

Handy snacks, but high in fat content (ouch !!).

Last but not least, this is a cute pict of piggy pork rind i saw from this website.

I bought it in Borneo woh, not in Peninsular. Might be if u look out for the pork rinds in the market, u might be able to find it too?

when mulut gatal time..
not as regular snacks ;)

BKT + keroPork

I absolutely lurve those pork rinds! They're crunchy and salty. In Melbourne I have to get them from Vietnamese groceries for $2 in small packs. After awhile it makes my mouth dry and I'll need lots of water... My mom used to make them out of pork fat when I was little : )
