Arrowroot Chips - CNY

The weekend was spent making these chips - arrowroot chips , a delicacy everyone loves. Arrowroots are in season  now. Supermarts are selling them at RM3.20 per kilo and I bought some to make chips...they are crunchy and a natural sweetness that is so addictive. It took me an hour to prepare these and we finished it in just half an hour in one sitting. We snacked on this while watching ' Gossip Girl ' ....mmmmm great snack and great drama and great time together LOL!  Will be making this chips again next week for the coming festive season. I never fail to make this every year since the day I knew how to make this chips. Quite tiring making this but it was worth it. 

choosing the arrowroot with a nice bottom is important
when making this chips..... no cracks  or the chips will not turn out
round and nice

this is a perfect bottom for making chips

soak them in salt water, dry them before slicing them into thin slices
straight in hot oil

.the arrowroots turned out great...crunchy and sweet

this chips are addictive and irrestible.......

  12. Hi,

    U may not need to post this.
    I think Arrowroot is the type we use to make soups, "Fun Got". Try looking at a box of arrowroot starch and u'll see the picture of the arrowroot.
    Ngaku is Arrowhead.

    Just my opinion.
