M.I.A and Frying Chinese Arrow Head


Hi there! sorry as I have been "M.I.A" . Mamarazzi says thanks for all the e-mail/Messages/SMS received. Am alright.

I M.I.A coz Mamarazzi was suddenly very busy lor.

 
The cause of M.I.A? This little "Monster"(Chinese Arrowhead a.k.a Ngaku) and some miscellaneous things that need attentions. By the time everything is done, Mamarazzi was too tired to draft any blog post.

Over the weekend there was a price war for this "Chinese Arrowhead". Just last month Mamarazzi blogged about Frying Chinese Arrowhead and the price then was RM3.28/kg. 
.
Last weekend some hypermarket are selling these for RM1.08 and 89sens only. Just now, Mommy Ling was telling Mamarazzi that Jusco was selling these at 29sen/kg yesterday! 

Haiz...Mamarazzi "borong" a lot.

Anyway, now that Mamarazzi got things pat down to a science..it's easy for her to fry it. Previous years she felt bored frying these but this year it was fun for her.

She would just peels a few first instead of a whole batch. Cut off the bum bum.

 
*sniff sniff bum bum* hmmm...the Ngaku didn't "prooot" at my face.

 Peel of the skin but leaving the stem intact. Throw into salt water to wash. Heat up the oil in the "wok" .

 
She didn't break the stem coz she need to hold it while she slice the Ngaku.


This year, she sliced directly into the "wok" instead.

While waiting for the "chips" to be fully cooked, she continue washing ad peeling the rest of the Ngaku and attend to other things while.

By then, the "chips" would be just nice. Golden brown. Yum yum.

Apart from frying Ngaku, we also went for "Makan-makan" and also saw "Lion Dance". Trying to "YouTube" it but the process is so slow. Hmm..maybe should get "Unifi"?

Well, that's all for now. Will be back again...soon....have to wait till Mamarazzi's hands and feel no longer "jellyfied" first.
