Keropok lekor.

Along the coastal road between Kuantan and Terengganu, there are rows of stall selling this Malaysian snack.
Fish sausages or keropok lekor, as it is commonly known in Malaysia is a popular snack from the East Coast. It is made of minced fish meat mixed together with sago/tapioca starch, salt and sugar. The mixture is kneaded, rolled into tubes and boiled.
The boiled keropok lekor is then deep-fried and best eaten hot with specially prepared sauce. At the stall that we patronize, the young girl did just that. No such thing as ready fried stock, it is freshly fried as you order them. Its not much to look at, more like big fat wormy things but it is delicious.
