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 chicken powder
a pinch of salt
a dash of ground white pepper
chili sauce for dipping
