The Process of Making Kerepek

 

Kerepek, also known as chips, is a local junk food. Kerepek are made mostly from plants (banana, cassava etc).There are many types of kerepek in Banting area, some of them were make using banana, some using sukun, and other using cassava. I was experienced to make kerepek using cassava. The workers there said that they could finish the process of making kerepek around 5 container of cassava per day.

  1. The very first beginning, you need to cut the outer skin.

  2. Once the Cassavas been peeled, they would bring them to the kitchen to do some other process.

  3. They use a machine to chop the Cassava into slices.

  4. The small pieces of Cassava will be immerge in a saffron liquid so that the color of it will turn to a bit of yellow.

  5. Cassava will be cook in a deep fried way.

  6. The worker checking the color of Cassava.

  7. Yellow color will comes out once the Cassava is fully cooked.

  8. The worker will adding some salt in order to make the Cassava not to sticky and taste a little bit salty.
    And the last process is to dry up the oil from the cooked Cassava.

They use some kind of custom made machine to dry up the oil from cooked Cassava. This process takes about 10 to 20 minutes. Then the cooked Cassava or Kerepek are ready for a packaging process.

 

Market potential of banana chips industry in Malaysia

A primary survey was conducted in 2003, involving entrepreneurs in processing banana chips. Results of the survey showed that 59% of respondents indicated that the demand for domestic market is good and 17% of them rated as very good. Thirty-six per cent of the respondents that are involved in exporting banana chips indicated that the demand for export market as good and 27% of them indicated as very good. Forty-two per cent of respondents indicated that they faced problems in peeling off the banana skins and 13% of them indicated that as a major problem. Seventy per cent of respondents indicated that their market for banana chips are presently increasing and 77% forecasted that their market would expand in the  future. Therefore, as a strategy to boost the development of the banana chip industry,the promotion of the consumption of banana chips as a healthy food is needed. As the industry expands, there is also a need to develop a banana peeling machine to overcome the labour shortage.

 

Conclusion

The demand for savoury snacks, including the banana chips in Malaysia is increasing. The value of the retail sale of savoury snacks in Malaysia has increased by 18.4% from 1998 to 2002, which recorded an average growth rate of 4.6%. The chips/crisps, excluding the Tortilla and the corn chips recorded a 22.8% growth from 1998 to 2002, with an annual growth rate of 5.7% (Anon. 2003). Results of this study indicated that the annual average growth rate for banana chips was 6.6%. This indicated that the growth rate of the banana chips is higher than the average growth rate of the general savoury snack. The results of the survey on the producers (based on their experiences), indicated that the banana chip industry will continue to grow in the future. The production and marketing problems highlighted need to be tackled in order for the industry to grow in future. To be more competitive, there is a need to further improve the production efficiency. There is a need to improve packaging and promote branding so that banana chips could be sold as a high quality product.

 

 

Banting Not The Only Attraction

By Stuart Michael

BANTING, a town in the district of Kuala Langat, Selangor, has a laid-back lifestyle and offers good food, reasonably-priced shopping and has a rich history. Situated on the banks of Sungai Langat, the town, with a population of about 50,000, has many attractions and one of them is a good place to shop for textiles.

 

The Indah Pesona Textile godown at Wisma MDKL is popular for its low-priced baju kurung and curtains. If you love saris and Punjabi suits, go to Jalan Pekan Banting. There you will find many items from India and the biggest of the shops is called Harekrishna. After watching the beautiful sunset at Morib beach, treat your family to a hearty meal as a whole stretch of stalls selling everything from satay to sotong and ikan bakar comes alive at night. On Sundays, there is a karaoke session with a small price of RM2 per song. Historically, the beach was a landing point for the British and Indian liberation forces during World War II.

 

Nature lovers can go jungle-trekking in the forest reserve at Bukit Jugra. Before reaching the peak, a lighthouse stands guard to guide vessels plying the Straits of Malacca. The view from the peak is breathtaking, so don’t forget to bring along a camera. Bukit Jugrah used to be called Parcelar Hill — derived from the Arabic word balasar, which means “above the head”.

 

Visitors should not miss the prominent Kanchong Darat landmark which is the Sidek residence belonging to Datuk Sidek Abdullah Kamar, the father of the Sidek badminton brothers. The brothers’ eldest sister stays there now, but visitors who wish to see the house are always welcome.

 

Before reaching Bukit Jugra, visitors will come across Makam Sultan Abdul Samad, the resting place of Sultan Abdul Samad Almarhum Raja Abdullah. He reigned as the Sultan of Selangor from 1857 to 1898. During his reign, Selangor saw its only civil war, which came to be known as the Klang War.

Banting town is also famous for its rojak mee and cendol. According to locals, the best rojak mee, which is pasembur and yellow noodles with five different curries, can be found at Restoran Tawaqal. The restaurant, run by a family of Indian Muslims from India, has been at Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad since 1941. Only two cendol stalls are worth mentioning here.

 

Both can be found along Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad — one in front of the old Lido cinema, which uses the traditional method to shave the ice, and the other in front of the KFC restaurant. Istana Bandar is historical as the fifth Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Alauddin Sulaiman Shah, built the royal palace in 1905.

 

It was the birth place of Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, the 11th Yang di-Pertuan Agong, who died in office. The palace is open daily to the public. Admission is free. Visiting hours are from 8am to 6pm. For those who want fresh fish, Kampung Endah fishing village is the spot to visit. Fishermen can be seen unloading their catch or mending broken nets here. There is a Chinese restaurant in the area and patrons can ask the restaurant to cook the fish for you.

 

Another popular tourist spot is Fazz Enterprise Kerepek House located at Kanchong Darat which offers 75 different traditional crackers and kuih. It is owned by the Mahmuddin Abas family which grows its own tapioca, banana and oil palm to make the snacks. The family also owns a small shop selling furniture made from Indonesian Jati wood.

 

Pantai Kelanang is a new tourist spot in Banting. Unlike Morib beach, which is a hive of activity, it is quite serene here. With a white sandy beach nestled behind mangrove trees, it is a place to relax and enjoy the peace and calm. To get to this beach, take the same road to Morib beach. After Tongkah, signboards have been placed to guide visitors. Banting town has suddenly captured the attention of all Malaysians and for the first time people all over the country are talking about it.

 

It did not even get so much of attention even when the Sidek brothers, who come from Kampung Olak Lempit not far from Banting town, were winning honours on the national and international front during their heyday. The town is located 32km from Klang and 20km from the KL International Airport (KLIA). 

 

The townspeople are as stunned as the rest of the nation over the brutal killing of millionaire Datuk Sosilawati Lawiya along with three others.The mood is sombre in Banting and the people were devastated, finding it difficult to believe such a ruthless crime took place in their area. Inevitably, the news of the murder and arrests had been the talking point in coffee shops, offices and schools especially over the past two days. StarMetro made a check around Banting town and found life continues to go on at a slow pace.

 

It resembles the usual set up of a small town which is mostly filled with double-storey shophouses. The visit also found that there were not many people out and about in the town which appeared rather quiet compared with normal days.The shops including restaurants and retail outlets were rather empty. The people seemed to have come to terms with the frequent appearance of police vehicles, journalists and photographers in town. Anthony Paul, 47, said Banting attracted a lot of attention from people all over the country. He said the news reports had also placed the town in a bad light.

 

Banting: Simple Town That Has Much to Offer

These famous individuals have one thing in common, Banting, an obscure town in Kuala Langat, less than 20km from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang.

And for a reason, these individuals put Banting not only on the country map but also the world map.The badminton-playing brothers, the Moto GP racer and the Harimau Muda forward have Banting listed as their place of birth but not the KL-based cosmetics millionaire. Each time the boys hit the headlines, Banting was proud of its sons even though the town was nowhere mentioned in the news reports.

But not too long ago when it finally made it to the headlines, it was for the wrong reason. The town became infamous after news broke out about the brutal murder of Sosilawati and her three companions at a quiet farm some 8km from the town in late August 2010.

However, no matter how the rest of the country or world looks at it or hears about it, Banting is still relatively unknown.

For those who have never set foot on its soil and for those who have only been there once, these names are all Banting has. Okay, maybe the Pantai Morib, too. But there is more to the town than just the beach and the racquet-and-shuttlecock monument in front of the Sidek brothers' house that makes the 75km drive from Kuala Lumpur to it worthwhile.

For one, there is a choice of three beaches -- the old and the new Pantai Morib, and Pantai Kelanang.While the old Morib has been given a facelift and becomes a recreational beach with a spacious promenade and super facilities, the other two are left untouched with only minimal basic facilities.

Still at the coast, Bukit Jugra -- the district's only knoll located only 15 minute's drive from the town -- is the country's famous jump-off point for paragliders.But that is not the only thing that puts Jugra on the map.

As Banting doesn't have any museum, the historic Jugra, a former royal town of Selangor, fills the void with a handful of historic buildings like the tomb of Sultan Abdul Samad, who reigned in the late 19th century, and Istana Bandar which was the royal palace for the fifth Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Alauddin Sulaiman Shah, who built it in 1905. This was also the birth place of Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, the 11th Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Now, through Jugra, Banting is being transformed as an education hub for the district, or probably for the state, as it has under its belt a handful of higher learning institutions and top-grade residential schools.

These institutions and the full-fledged manufacturing zone at the neighbouring Teluk Panglima Garang and the Olak Lempit have make Banting, once an agricultural hub, enjoys rapid development.

From only a few rows of double-storey pre-war buildings along Jalan Sultan Abdul Samad, the town has expanded beyond the main road. From local establishments founded since 1930s, Banting now hosts the big players either from the financial institutions, retail sector and even fast-food industry.

Well, while Banting folks find fast-food restaurants -- McDonald's, KFC, Pizza Hut and Domino's -- a welcome change from their neighbourhood eateries, visitors, however, should try the town's specialities.

First on the list is its cendol, some regard it as one of the country's best, that goes very well with a hearty plate of rojak mamak or rojak mee. Rojak mamak is the southern version of the famous Penang pasembor while rojak mee is yellow noodles in five different curries.

For something more elegant, visit Saha Coffee and Fruit Bar, probably Banting's homegrown Starbucks. The price is very much cheaper and the choice of food served include both Eastern and Western dishes.

While one can't find high-end fashion brands, one can definitely find something to bring home.

Buy and savour some of its famous kerepek -- banana, tapioca, sweet potato and yam chips - and keropok -- onion and ikan bilis crackers from one of Banting's many cottage industry centres. These centres are one of the highlights for homestay programmes.

And if you're in town on Sunday, make your way to Jalan Masjid in Kampung Kanchong Darat to join the locals at Pasar Kampuchea (Cambodian Market), a weekend market selling cheaper-than-KL-and-Kelang garments and merchandise.

As the name suggests, most of the vendors are from a small community of Cambodian Malays who came to the area more than two decades ago.Banting may not be the neighbourhood I live in but it is the neighbourhood I return to every other weekend.

SNACK FOOD

A snack is a portion of food oftentimes smaller than that of a regular meal, that is generally eaten between meals. Snacks come in a variety of forms including packaged and processed foods and items made from fresh ingredients at home.

Traditionally, snacks were prepared from ingredients commonly available in the home. Often leftovers, sandwiches made from cold cuts, nuts, fruit, and the like were used as snacks. The Dagwood sandwich was originally the humorous result of a cartoon character's desire for large snacks. Beverages, such as coffee, are not generally considered snacks though they may be eaten between meals like a snack, or along with snack foods. A beverage may be considered a snack if it possesses a substantive food item (e.g., strawberries, bananas, kiwis) that has been blended to create a smoothie.

Plain snacks like plain cereals, pasta and vegetables are also mildly popular, and the word snack has often been used to refer to a larger meal involving cooked or leftover items. Six-meal eating is a form of eating that interjects healthy snacks in between small meals, to stave off hunger and promote weight loss.

With the spread of convenience stores, packaged snack foods are now a significant business. Snack foods are typically designed to be portable, quick and satisfying. Processed snack foods are designed to be less perishable, more durable, and more portable than prepared foods. They often contain substantial amounts of sweeteners, preservatives, and appealing ingredients such as chocolate, peanuts, and specially-designed flavors (such as flavored potato chips). A snack eaten shortly before going to bed or during the night may be called a midnight snack.

CRACKER FOODA cracker is a baked good commonly made from grain flour dough and typically made in quantity in various hand-sized or smaller shapes. Flavorings or seasonings, such as salt, herbs, seeds, and/or cheese, may be added to the dough or sprinkled on top before baking. Crackers are a nutritious and ready to eat way to use a staple food or cereal grain that is advantageous for storage and travel. A precedent for the modern cracker can be found in nautical ship biscuits, military hardtack, and sacramental bread. Ancestors of the cracker can be found in ancient flatbreads, such as lavash, pita, matzo, and crisp bread. Asian analogues include chapati and senbei.
