Mini Rempeyek (Malaysian Traditional Peanut Cookies)

Occasionally, while watching my favourite show in AFC, I would be munching away snacks like rempeyek (Malaysian Traditional Peanut Cookies) or maybe some kacang (nuts). Rempeyek round flat base is made from rice flour with some spice like cumin, coriander and fennel added to it. Then toasted peanuts and anchovies (ikan bilis) would be placed on top of the flat disc like dough which is around 3 inches in diameter. This is then deep fried in hot oil until crispy. Some rempeyek has thin crust but some has thick ones. The thick crust ones normally have peanuts toppings and the thin crust rempeyek has peanuts and anchovies (ikan bilis) toppings. I bought this mini size rempeyek from the biscuits vendor I frequent at Kepong Baru Market. It is very fresh and not oily. This mini size rempeyek has only peanuts toppings. Since it comes in bite size, I just pop the whole piece in the mouth without have to worry about scraps falling all over the place. Yum, yum.....I am going to eat my crunchy and tasty rempeyek now! Cheers!
