This is a favourite snack that is seen only once a year during CNY. It's so much cheaper if you DIY. It's very addictive and you cannot stop eating once you start.
These Arrowhead or Nga Gu / Chi Gu is available during Chinese New Year. It costs $3 for a kilo here in Singapore. I chose some with green shoots to grow in a pot later. It's our tradition to grow a pot of arrowhead every CNY.
Wash and clean arrowheads. Peel arrowheads and Pat dry. It will help if you leave the top shoot intact to help in an easy slicing. Just hold the top to slice the artowhead.
Slice into thin slices using a mandolin.
Do not wash arrowheads after slicing.
Place onto paper towels to absorb the moisture.
Heat up oil in a wok and add 1/2 tsp salt.
Slowly drop in slice arrowheads and fry over medium fire until golden brown.
Scoop onto paper towels to absorb the oil.
Store in container when cool. Enjoy.
