Prosperity Taro Balls


Seafood & chicken meat are mostly used in my daily cooking cause there's NO PIG in the house. haha... Oh well, not because we can't take pork or anything.......just that my family doesn't like it and also most red meat. So, it gives me no choice. As always, I need to come out with something yummy during this time of the year with just limited ingredients. And also something my kids would enjoy. So...not waiting for long. Here's the lovely dish of my prosperity taro balls.

I prepared quite a large batch of the fish paste mixture from the last recipe and purposely use it on this. So, there's not much wastage. And even stored up another batch for some other recipes as well.

So, here's what I did.
Ingredients :
1 small taro, skinned & grated
salt & pepper to taste
1 tspn  chinese five spice powder
3 TB  glutinous rice flour

*1 beaten egg for coating

Ingredients for filling :
200gm  homemade fish paste
200gm  shrimp / prawns, minced
1/2 cup  water chestnut, chopped
1/3 cup  carrot, chopped
handful of cilantro, chopped
salt & pepper to taste
3 TB  wheat starch
(combine everything and mix well, set aside)

Method :
(1) marinade grated taro with salt & pepper, spices and glutinous rice flour for about an hour or till softened.
(2) for preparation, spoon filling into size as desired then coat with beaten egg.
(3) wrap meat filling with grated taro nicely and set aside till everything completed.
(4) then fry over medium heat till golden brown.

Whoever has taken fried shredded taro before surely know how it would taste like ! Fried taro itself already very very tasty and aromatic.....what if an additional seafood bowl wrapping inside the fried taro ! Can you imagine the taste? Last year, I have made fried grated taro with prawns and it turned out really delicious. And this year is another successful job. Hope you guys will like it too.

Oh, these taro balls look so delicious! How smart that you made extra fish paste for this recipe. I think I need to start making a batch too. :) Didn't know your family doesn't like pork or red meat. Hope they'll change in the future and you have more cooking options. Many kids would grow up changing their taste buds, you never know. ;)
