Braised Arrowhead(Ngaku) with Minced Chicken

Fresh arrowroot or in Chinese called as Ngaku is a popular fried snack during Chinese New Year.When I was in Chinatown I bought a whole bunch of ngaku  for deep fried but I totally forget it because I placed it on our deck.Out of sight out of mind.Usually during winter I used our deck as our big refrigerator.Long story short,my fresh arrowroot can't use as fried ngaku before our deck is too cold during storm snow Nemo. Instead of deep fried to make snack ,I used it to braised  with  minced chicken.This dish is really delicious and simple.

3 lbs arrowhead,peeled and slice
300 gm minced chicken
5 sweet pepper,slice
1 stalk scallion,slice
5 garlic,peeled and minced
1 cup water

2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp ground pepper
2 tbsp chicken bouillon powder
2 tbsp soy sauce
3-4 tbsp canola oil

1:Heat wok at medium high heat with oil and garlic.Fry garlic for 30 seconds before toss in minced chicken,mix well.
2:Add in arrowhead ,water and all the seasoning,mix well. Braise for 20-30 minutes. Then toss in sweet pepper.Check the seasoning.
3:Sprinkle scallion and dish out.Serve warm.
