This morning I picked some betel leaves ,sand ginger from my garden and some Belimbing asam( Averrhoa bilimbi) from my malay neighbour garden ,to make a healthy betel leaves snack….
Betel leaves wrapped is a simple, easy & great to make appetizer or snack and its fun to eat and healthy to all friends ! It is amazing how delicious simple things can be and a prefect appetizer that can be made for any occasion !!
15-20 Raw fresh betel leaves or called daun kadok from my garden yard.
8-10 chopped Green chilli padi and red bird’s eye chilli
3 wing bean-slices
6 lime or lemon – the thinner the skin, the better-cut into 6
6 Averrhoa bilimbi ( Belimbing asam)-slices
Vegan mushroom cracker
some roasted peanuts or any nuts of choice
* You can have any raw green veggie in hand for wrapped this snack *
Sweet Coconut Sauce:
1 tablespoon finely diced sand ginger (from my garden,love the aroma of this sand ginger ) or you can also use galangal
1/3 cup chopped shallots
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup palm sugar
1 red bird’s eye chilli
2-3 tbsp grated toasted coconut
- Boil over medium low heat to reduce the sauce to the thickness . Make sure to keep stirring to prevent over burnt.Turn off the heat …
- Add the roasted coconut, mix well and put into a small serving bowl.
- Take one of the betel leaf and fold the bottom to make a pouch . To assemble this just put a little bit of everything …..chopped lime, roasted peanuts,slices oxalidaceae fruit ,vegan cracker and diced red or green chili padi ..a little spoonful of sweet coconut sauce . Roll and make a packet, and eat this in one bite,if you love spicy is great taste with more green bird’s eye chillie !!
Add a bit of each ingredient & some sauce.
Bon appetit ! …:)
