  1. Aunty Rose,

    I am interested to try this recipe but wish to know how big is the roll to roll out – I mean what is the diameter?
    Thank you for your answer.

    Also, Aunty Rose wish you very good health and lots of happiness this new year.

  2. Thank you Mei, wish you all the best too.
    You can roll the dough out and cut into even strips of about 1 cm in diameter or just use your favourite cookie cutter to cut out the desired shapes.

  4. Aunty Rose,

    I finally tried your recipe – very yummy. Instead of chilli powder, I used paprika and I add extra for more ‘oomph’! Thanks so much, definitely will make again.

    God Bless You, Aunty Rose and Wish You and your family a Very Happy and Prosperous Year of the Tiger – good health, lots of happiness and lots of time to try out new recipes and share with us. Ha! Ha!
