I was browsing through Cikmanggis archive last Friday to have some ideas what to cook for the family this weekend and found this simple recipe of mini murtabak. It is simple and almost instant to make it as I don't have to prepare the roti dough the day beforehand. This recipe uses spring rolls sheets that you can get from Coles or Asian groceries in the freezer section. It was fun and easy to made. A Malaysia version of beef pie or chicken pie which is a very popular snack and you can get them at pasar malam (night market).
All the vegetables except for the onion and garlic were not from our garden. No chooks in our garden so not sure which farm the eggs came from.Ingredients (adapted from CikManggis):
200 gm mince meat/chicken
1 Big onion (finely diced)
3 garlic cloves (finely diced)
2 Tablespoon curry powder (add just a bit of water into paste)
1/2 teaspoon white pepper powder
Coriander (coarsely chopped)
1 spring onion (coarsely chopped)
1 capsicum (diced)
corn kernels (1cup)
2 chicken eggs
spring rolls sheets
salt and sugar (to taste)
Heat oil. Saute diced onion and garlic. Then add curry powder. Stir until the heavenly aroma of curry powder is fill in the air around your kitchen. Add mince beef and mix well until cook. Add salt and sugar. Cook until dry, no more liquid. Add in corn, capsicum, spring onion, coriander and mix well. Let it cool down before breaking 2 eggs into it and mix. Put the fillings on top of the spring roll sheets and fold. Heat the pan and just brush a little cooking oil on the pan. Not too much oil as spring roll sheets absorb a lot of oil. Pan-fry till cook. Eat with curry or red onion vinegar.
The outer layer was very nice and crispy. Here is a peek of what the filling look inside the fold.
