This is the original taste of Penang popiah commonly found in many coffee shops. Served wet with fried turnip or jicama with the sweetness from lightly caramelized onions. This recipe calls for the serunding that is not traditionally used in the dish but will provide an extra spicy kick to the moist fillings.

 8 cloves garlic, finely chopped
