"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Home-cooked Stuffed Hairy Squash 酿毛瓜

My favourite deep-fried taupok! My mum is very good at making stuffed items or otherwise known as 酿豆腐, 酿辣椒,酿矮瓜,etc.

Method for the meat:
1. Pork and fish meat in the ratio 1:2. Minced them together.
2. Add seasonings. Add diced water chestnut and prawns if you like.
3. Leave it in the chiller for it to be marinated.
4. Stuff the meat into any item you wish!
5. Coat items with a little corn flour. Then pan-fry to prevent the meat from falling out while cooking later.
