Then, remove the blade form the food processor and attach the shredding disc with the largest hole. Shred the carrot and water chestnut into the mixture. Once it’s done, remove the disk and use a spatula to give it a good mix and set aside.

wraping

Ensure that the sides are sealed and remember not to wrap it too tightly as the meat may expand while cooking

Here comes the fun part! Cut the beancurd sheet into smaller pieces and clean the sheets with a damp cloth to remove excess salt. Scoop the filling and line it on the bean curd sheet. Then, brush on some egg wash and roll up! Ensure that the sides are sealed and remember not to wrap it too tightly as the meat may expand while cooking and we don’t want the beancurd skin to tear apart!

steaming

Frying

Deep fry the Ngoh Hiang until golden brown

It’s time to start cooking! Arrange the Ngoh Hiang on a heatproof plate and steam it for 10 minutes and let it cool. Next, heat up oil in a wok and deep fry the Ngoh Hiang until golden brown. Drain and lay it on a paper towel once it’s cooked! Proceed to cut and serve on a plate once it has cooled down. Go ahead and garnish with some lettuce and put some of your favorite dipping sauce beside it!
