Food Glossary: Krupuk

Krupuk is the Indonesian term for prawn or vegetable crackers and they are a frequent appearance on an Indonesian plate of food.  They are made from shrimp with cassava flour, or fish flakes with rice dough, and then cut into slices and fried to a crisp.  Frying them is particularly fun as they take just a few seconds and they take on a life of their own as they curl up, and then un-curl!
