These mini rolls do come with a price – an effort to roll them before Air frying. A little bit of patience and time required.
Grab a chair, switch on the TV and roll it while watching TV. I took a while – like an hour – to roll 1 tub of mini rolls. However, you know that your effort is definitely worth it when the crispy popiah skin break into pieces the moment you bite it.
I use the smaller popiah skin and cut each piece of popiah skin into 4 smaller pieces.
Cover the unused wrapper with wet cloth as it will dry up and will become very brittle.
Ok… now on how to wrap…
1/2 of teaspoon of pork floss per wrapper and place it at the lower end like this.
Use beaten egg to seal the edges of the roll. Brush a bit of egg mixture onto the lower top of the skin
Fold the lower ends of the skin up to form a double triangle like this
Brush the 2 left and right edges of the skin with egg mixture
And fold the sides inwards to form an envelope
After that, start to roll tightly and seal the top edges with egg mixture
Try to have the sealed edge facing down while rolling the remaining floss rolls
Lay the rolls onto a tray and brush them lightly with oil
Layered them into the basket without overlapping. Divide into batches to air fry.
