Ngoh Hiang is an uniquely Hokkien and Teochew dish. It’s deep fried delicious goodness is adopted into other households as well. The addition of 5-spice powder gives it an earthy and fragrant taste. The meaty taste of of the minced meat is heightened by the sweetness of the minced prawns. The diced water chestnuts gives it crunch. We used Knife Thai Fish Sauce to provide the dish a depth of umami flavour.
You can make a big batch to freeze. Just take it out to thaw and fry when you need it. You can use an air fryer too, just brush with a little oil and set it at 180C and airfry till golden brown!
