Popia are basically the Malaysian spring rolls. There are a variation of fillings,  from the usual sengkuang ( jicama ), carrots and bean sprouts to the more uncommon curried potatoes. Most popia come with a small sachet of chilli sauce as this is how most Malaysians eat them, by dipping the roll into the sauce before taking a bite.

Cucur Kacang Hijau is a fried fritter filled with Mung Bean paste. Mung beans have to be soaked for hours to soften them up. The sweet filling is a mixture of mung beans, sugar and coconut, covered with the usual flour batter and then fried to crisp perfection. You can usually see them being fried on-site at streetside stalls across Malaysia. These delicious fried snacks are best enjoyed in the late afternoon.
