It’s the Year of the Mouse! How time flies… Wishing you a very Happy Chinese New Year and may you be blessed with great health and prosperity.
Here’s my very first video on YouTube that is Chinese New Year related hahaha… This mini popiah is what I’ve been making every year. I used to use a convection oven for it but ever since I have an air fryer, I’m using the air fryer to make it.
Spring roll pastry (e.g. 50 sheets can yield 450 mini popiah)
Meat floss (e.g. pork/chicken/shrimp)
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch mix with 20ml water (can always make more when you run out)
*No fix measurement on the above. You can have as much filling as you want or make it as big or as small as you want.
Air fryer or oven setting:-
Temperature: 140 degree Celcius
Time to: 20-25 minutes
Stop it after around 10 minutes or mid-cycle, shake it or stir it(depending on your equipment feature) to ensure balance distribution of heat, then continue the air frying.
As simple as that. The temperature and time are just guidelines depending on your air fryer or oven. The size and the amount of the popiah will also need to be taken into consideration. As long that you don’t burn it. The spring roll pastry should be crispy as the end result.
Remember to store them in airtight container. Enjoy!
