Arrowhead Chips – 炸慈菇脆片

Chinese New Year is a reunion time for family and friends. Snacking is a must whilst catching up. Various types of sweets, cookies and nuts are served. One of the favourites snacks served are Arrowroots chips. Its crunchy, sweet with a slight tinge of bitterness. One can’t stop with just a few, sometimes a whole container is polished off without one realising it!!

Get some friends together, have a cookout making loads of containers of it. Its cheaper and healthier than buying. And it’s made with love.
