Arrowroot for CNY

One would never notice that their baby is ugly, same for me.
I spent one whole afternoon peeling and frying arrowroot.
For a first timer, of course the process wasn't that smooth.
I cut my fingers, cracked my nails and had sore throat the next day.
But at the end of the day, in my humble opinion, I somehow felt that the outcome was perfect. :p

Until just now my colleague pointed at my photo and told me that my arrowroot has ugly edges.
My heart was broken. Sob Sob.
I am not going to forgive him for waking me up from my dream. :p

No wonder you got sick.. Too much of fried oily food.
Although the outlook of the food is not that good, but the most important thing is the taste.

I didn't eat much. :(
Have stopped cooking for 3 days...
Hope will recover soon.

Well SS... as long as you are happy with what you had popped out from your shear hard work.. that matters most. :)

Happy "Niu" Year to you and all in the family. May this year be a healthy, wealthy and prosperous year for everyone. :)

p/s: You can try out breadfruit (buah sukun) instead. I love those chips from my Pulau Aman trip. :)

Hi, I like arrowroot so much. But I am not as hardworking as you- did not prepare that by myself. However, lucky enough to have someone to give me a free ' bottle'.

Hi Anonymous,

Thanks for the compliment. There are many good cooks out there and I am only a beginner.

Hi My Taste Heaven,

You are lucky to get 'free' bottle. :)
But I made very little this round due to inefficiency.
Will try to improve next year.
