Mini Taro Nests

20160131_132333sDeep fried mini taro nests make a lovely snack but I find them a little overpriced. Why pay when there’s taro in the backyard and I can prepare and fry these delectable crisps in a couple of hours?IMG_9619s

I found two undersized taros – which, with some elbow grease and a hot wok, soon turned into little tempting clusters of crispy taro nests.

 

Here’s what you need:

1 small taro

1 tbsp sesame seeds

Some coriander leaves

1 teasp 5-spice powder

½ teasp salt

Dash of pepper

1 tablesp rice flour

¼ teasp cornflour

 

Here’s how:

  1. Shred the taro into strips.
  2. Coarsely cut the coriander leaves.
  3. Mix the taro strips with all the other ingredients.
  4. Heat up some oil in a wok.
  5. Shape the taro into little clusters or nests and drop into the oil.
  6. Deep fry till golden brown. Store in an airtight container when cool.
