Fried Arrow Head 炸慈姑片

I felt in loves with this Fried Arrow Head, after being introduce into eating it during last year CNY. A Couple of weeks ago, office nearby tibits stall were selling a small packet for S$5, yet i crave and bought to eat.

The taste of the arrow head is refreshing and crispy after fried, unlike the fried tapioca.

Arrow Head seems like a seasonal food, easily available during CNY period. When I was young, my grandma used to grow them like plant during CNY. Now its new role is ... tibits (munch munch)

In fact the making of the Arrow Head is easy.

1) Peel off the skin

2) Give it a good wash, soak in the water for a while. Drian and start slicing them into thin layer

3) Fried it over medium fire till lightly brown. May sprinkle some salt and give a good shake while keeping in a air tight container

I love this!!! I made this 2 yrs ago but it's too much work! Decided to buy instead. Pretty expensive, fm $8-10 per bottle & I can finish it in like a day. -.-".

Hi My Little Things Corner,
