Popiah (Hokkien 薄饼, "thin biscuit", called báobǐng in Mandarin) is a spring roll of Hokkien and Chaozhou origin common in Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand. The skin of the popiah is a thin paper-like crêpe or pancake made from wheat flour which is covered with a sweet sauce, and sometimes with chilli sauce, before it is filled. The filling is mainly finely grated and steamed or stir-fried turnip, jicama (known in Malaysia and Singapore as bangkuang), which has been cooked with a combination of other ingredients such as bean sprouts, French beans, and lettuce leaves, along with grated carrots, slices of Chinese sausage, thinly sliced fried tofu, chopped peanuts or peanut powder, fried shallots, and shredded egg omelette. Sometimes, pork (marinated and stir-fried), shrimp or crab meat is added to popiah.
