3. Beef Jerky
Here’s something that will last for more than a month! If you haven’t heard of beef jerky before, just imagine lean trimmed meat that has been cut into strips and dried (dehydrated).

Although this dish is absolutely foreign in Malaysia, it’s not impossible to make! All of the ingredients can be bought locally and it could make a great snack.

Rissole is a snack food in Indonesia. It really resembles popia but we assure you that it doesn’t taste the same at all. They are commonly filled with bechamel sauce, chicken, and diced vegetables – including carrot, celery, common beans and potato. Honestly, it that doesn’t spell a good time in your mouth, then we don’t know what will.
