Hakka Ngoh Hiang – 客家五香

The Meatmen’s Hakka Ngoh Hiang is a double fried delicious goodness filled with shrimps, fish and pork. The meaty taste from the minced meat is heightened by the sweetness of the shrimps. The diced water chestnuts gives it an additional crunch. 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!
