Chicken Ngoh Hiang (deep fried beancurd meat rolls) 五香

Chicken Ngoh Hiang (deep fried beancurd rolls) 五香


Another humble homecook dish from my kitchen, Hokkian style of Ngoh Hiang 五香 which the ground pork seasoned with five spice powder and snugly wrapped in dried beancurd skins and deep fry it. This time I changed to chicken meat and it still taste good.

Ngoh Hiang 五香 is mean Chinese five spice powder, and this is the important seasoning in Ngoh Hiang, without adding this spice powder, then we should not call this as Ngoh Hiang.

This time I did not use the big beancurd skin that special for Ngoh Hiang use but I just use the normal beancurd skin as I find the special beancurd skin is very salty eventhough i have wipe off the salt from the skin.

  25. Oh my goodness, Sonia... You don't understand how much I LOVE beancurd skin!! When we go to Dim Sum, I eat the entire order of beancurd dish by myself so we always need 2 orders of that. I love this dish so much but never thought of making one because I didn't have a recipe. This one is a deep fried version and I'd love to give it a try! Thanks for sharing!
