Food Review & Giveaway - Tepung Magik

~ Posted on Tuesday, August 14, 2012 at 12:00 PM ~

Ok, I was going back to and fro whether I should put this post under product review or food review, and ended up with the later one as it was used in food preparation, so yeah, here is my review of the:


In direct translation from Malay language to English, it means magic flour.

What's so magical about it? Read on my review below will ya?

This flour is actually fried mushroom powder but it is also a multipurpose flour as it can be used for other types of foods as well. I'm translating the info below from the product page.

"Fried mushroom powder is the title of the magic powder because the crispness remains for hours. Unlike ordinary flour in the market, it will go stale quickly after frying. The advantages of this flour are:
* Quick & easy to prepare
* Not Oily
* No need to use eggs
* Do not need to use too much flour
* Do not need to use too much oil
* Fried foods does not go soggy fast"

The moment I received the flour, I quickly got to thinking what can I used it with. Now, I am not a cook, the only time I cook is for my kids, the rest are mainly handled by my MIL and my hubby occassionally. So, I tried the flour with 2 very adhoc recipes of mine:


I got the idea of making this while I was testing another product I got for my review (the Scotch™ Premium Kitchen Scissors) As I cut and cut the chicken meat smaller and smaller, I thought, "Hey! This looks so cute and small, kinda like the KFC popcorn chicken! Hmmmm... "

Picture below showing the preparation, how I marinate the chicken meat with the Tepung Magik and then frying the chicken bits.

And this is the result of the chicken bits fried - yumyumyumsssss! I did not prepared a lot as it was my first attempt and I thought I should minimise any kitchen disasters for my 1st attempt, so I only made a small bowl of chicken popovers, total about 20 small bits of chicken I can say...

FYI, my MIL had 1 piece, I had 2 pieces, my hubby whom I thought had 1 piece (I gave him 1 to try) and then he sneaked behind me and took 3-4 pieces more (I let it cool down in kitchen as my 3 year old boy was having his nap).

 And ladies and gentlemen, the rest of the chicken popovers went to this handsome cheeky man below... yup, ALL of the chicken bits that I prepared and fried with patience and love... And if my boy can sit still and whack all the food, it really means it is good stuff!


Hey, since I'm on the roll, the next day I decided to make fried dory fish nuggets. Told my MIL that I planned to cook for dinner that night and defrost a slice of dory fish from the freezer hours earlier. Again, I cut the dory fish into small bite sizes and marinated them in the Tepung Magik.


This is the result of the fried dory fish - again yumyumyumsssss! I felt like Gordon Ramsey, whipping up yummylicious foods for everyone hahahaha!

In summary, this is a very promising product which I would not mind using again. It has a herb type of smell and for Malay readers of my blog, do note that this flour is labelled 'Halal' so, no worries ya! Again, there are many other foods you can try on, not just chicken and fish, you can fry mushroom, potatoes, long beans, tofu, much much more! I'm happy to be given the opportunity to try this out!
