Mix flour and baking powder well.
Mix water, vinegar and salt in a cup.

To assemble the Epok Epok
Remove dough from fridge
Roll out into a huge rectangle about ¼ inch thick.
Roll the dough from the wider end, Swiss roll style.
After rolling, it will look like a huge sausage roll.
Cut the sausage roll dough into pieces about the width of 2 fingers
Flatten the cut dough pieces and slightly roll it to an oval shape.
Fill the dough with the filings, pinch and fold to close the dough.
Brush with egg wash and bake in a pre-heated oven 200C until golden.
The dough must rest for at least 30 mins. Baked Epok Epok can be frozen for about 2 weeks.
