A homely and traditional dish that seems to be slowly forgotten over time, this is an underrated wholesome recipe that one can prepare a satisfying meal for the whole family any day.
Juices from using minced meat draws out the natural sweetness of the sotong (aka squid), which is the star of this dish. Paired with the stuffing are water chestnuts, providing this dish with the CRUNCH that can be absolutely yummy! Last but not least, we add salted egg into this to elevate the flavour of this dish. There, a delicious combo done right!
This recipe is definitely a keeper, and we’ll encourage you to try it out too.
