Poh piah-- fully loaded with goodies

I have always love ‘poh piah’ (Chinese version of burrito)– I don’t think I can get tired of eating it. While some people have different filling, the most common and main filling is jicama ‘bangkuang’,  with other side ingredients like bean sprouts, fried tofu, cucumber, eggs, lettuce, pork, fried shallots, granulated peanut etc. These side ingredients not only add color and texture but also deliver flavor. A bite into ‘poh piah’ and you can still taste each ingredient’s unique flavor– that’s why I can eat 4-5 rolls at one time with no problem. As you can see from the ingredients, this is quite a healthy snack food loaded with lots of vegetables and little on meat. Good news to all vegetarian friends: this dish can be completely vegetarian too (just omit the shrimp and pork) and still taste good. Enjoy the pictures! Next time I make it I will write down the recipe to post it on the blog… it’s been a long time and I forgot the ingredient amount…
