Popiah skin

I forgot where I get the popiah skin recipe, but it is really nice.

Popiah skin (Spring Roll skin)
Ingredients (made about 20-22, 6 inches diameter sheets)

150 gm bread flour
400 ml water
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Seive the flour+baking powder into a mixing bowl.
Add in the salt and water and mix well until no lumps. You should obtain quite a runny batter.
Let it rest for 15-20minutes.
Heat up a non stick pan on low heat. Dip a paper towel with some vegetable oil and lightly grease the pan. Once it's hot, remove th epan from the hob, brush the pan with the batter using a silicone pastry brush, make sure you make a really thin sheet. Plaster any holes, bring the pan back onto the hob and let it cook. You'll see the sheet will rise on the edges, using a fork or your fingers, peel of from the pan. Lay it on a plate. Repeat until you've consumed all the batter

Wow! I remember reading a similar recipe in a magazine, but instead of saving it, I lost it. The Chinese chef used the same technique as in your recipe, but I couldn't remember the ingredients (measurments).

Now, through your pages, it's "back"! (If it isn't the same it surely looks very similar..:)So...

Thank you very, very much!
