How to make homemade kropeck:


1 kilo shrimp heads (blanched)
1/2 kilo rice
2 tbsp salt
1 tbsp vetsin
5 tbsp limewater (prepared by dissolving 1 tbsp. lime in 1 cup water)
pinch of black pepper


1. Soak rice in water overnight. Then grind together with the shrimp heads, which were previously blanched. The ground mixture should be very fine. Mix salt, vetsin, limewater, and black pepper for flavoring.
2. Pour the mixture into a greased pan — an aluminum pie plate can serve the purpose. Steam for two or three minutes. Then slice into desired sizes. Dry the kropeck under the sun for one to two days until it turns brittle. Finally, fry the dried kropeck.
