Fish crackers.

Malaysian "chips/crisps", not made of potato but fish as the main ingredient.

Fish is ground to a paste and mixed with sago before it is rolled into tubes, steamed, thinly sliced and then sun dried. To eat just fry in hot oil for a few seconds.
The ratio between the fish and sago, the type of fish used and the way it is prepared gave variety to the end product.
At this stall it is sold loose where it can be bought based on weight or ready packed.
And in the midst of the keropoks, salted fish and assortment of dried seafood, a drum set. A budding musician probably on the way to stardom....
