  • Place the taro cubes in a large bowl and add some water. Cover and microwave for about 7 mins at 600 Watt. You can also steam until it's tender.
  • Process the steamed taro finely in a food processor. Then combine the smashed taro with 2 tbsp all-purpose flour, 2 tbsp tapioca/corn starch and 1/2 tbsp sugar. Wear on plastic gloves and mix well until all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Season the minced pork with 1/2 tsp chicken stock, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/2 tbsp minced garlic and shallots. Mix well and set aside for about 10 mins.
  • Mix the woodear mushrooms, Chinese sausages with the minced pork. Divide the taro into 8 equal portions. Take 1 portion and flatten it out into a disk, place 1 tsp of the filling in the center and pinch the edge together. Roll it in between your palms to make a nice ball.
  • Sprinkle some flour on the plate and roll the taro ball over it to coat with a thin layer of the flour. Then dip it in a bowl of beaten egg and then the bread crumbs.
  • Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a pan until you see bubbles around the chopstick. Keep the heat at medium and drop in the taro balls and fry until they are golden brown.
  • Serve with some mayo or chili sauce. It's crispy on the outside and really soft and tender on the inside.
