Hi Han - welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the Jemput-Jemput recipe and the Chilli dip.

What a great idea use Anchovies! Would neer have thought of that.

What sort of flour do you use for the Jemput-Jemput?

In England, we make something a little similar, which we call Fritters - in France they call them Beignets, in Japan they have Tempura, and, of course, in India they do Pakoras or Bhajis (made with Gram Flour). I suppose most cuisines have some variation of deep fried battered vegetables, fruit, fish or meat.

More Malaysian recipes please!
