Easy Taro Fritters


Sort of my steamed taro cake but instead of steaming it after mixing all ingredients , I just fried it right away . You can also add more veggies like carrots or corn or cilantro for more color , add fresh shrimp or dried one , add lap cheong or yun cheong or go vegetarian .

250 grams taro
3/4 cup rice flour
1/3 cup tapioca starch
2/3 cup lukewarm water
1/4 cup diced (steamed) lap yuk
4 T diced spring onion
2 small dried mushrooms , soaked and diced
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp chicken powder
a pinch of salt
a dash of ground white pepper

chili sauce for dipping

Lap yuk 

* Cut taro into cubes , steam for 10 minutes , mash half and leave the rest as it is .
* In a large bowl , combine all ingredients , adjust taste .
* Heat some oil in the pan , drop a heaping tablespoon of the mixture , pan fry on both sides until lightly brown
*  Serve hot . Goes well with steamed rice or noodles or can be eaten on it's own .
