How To Make Popiah/Spring Roll Wrappers/Skin

This is an updated post with a new video cooking guide on "How To Make Popiah or Spring Roll Skin/Wrappers." It's complete with recipe and the necessary guide to make the wrapper at home.

How To Make Popiah/Spring Roll Wrappers/Skin


500 grams All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Sea Salt
450 ml Water


Dissolve the salt with water. Pour the water into the flour, and mix with your hand until you have a thick batter. Then pick up same batter from the edge of the bowl and drop it into the center of the batter. Repeat the process a few more times and beat the batter with your hand for a few times. Continue both processes for about 10 minutes, until batter is smooth and elastic. Let the batter rest for about 20 to 30 minutes.

When ready to make the wrapper. Place the pan on a medium heat. Once the pan is hot, set the heat to low. Using one hand, coat the batter and rub onto the pan with a circular motion. As the sides of the wrapper begin to curl up, use the other hand to peel off the wrapper. Place on a plate.

Makes about 36 (6 ½ to 7 ½ inches) wrappers

Note: If the pan is too hot, the batter will not adhere to the pan. So adjust the temperature accordingly.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest.
