Fried Burdock Root (Gobo) 炸牛蒡

The other day when i cooked Tonjiru (Japanese Pork Miso Soup) 豬肉味噌湯, i can't finished the whole Burdock root (Gobo).  So I use the leftover to deep fry, it was so crunchy and sweet after deep fried.

This remind me the  Wu Har (Crispy Taro ball) 港式芋虾that i made during last Chinese New Year..but this fried burdock root is more crunchy than Wu Har,this give me an idea to use Burdock root to replace with Yam when i prepare Wu Har next time.
