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.
