>fish + chips = kerupuk, krupuk or keropok

The most fun you can have with the deep fryer starts with small, thin leathery hard chips made of fish or shrimp and starch (normally sago).

You pop them in oil, and watch them blow up to 10 times its original size.
Resembling rice crackers, these airy snacks will satisfy your craving for something... salty and crunchy.

You can easily imagine it competing/mingling with yam, taro, potato or totilla chips.
These snacks are also eaten with rice or noodles.
My experimentation with "krupuk tacos" turned out unbelievably well. I also made a salad substituting croutons with crushed krupuk. It tastes especially good if you make a dressing with lemon or lime juice.
