Foodie Friday: Fried Taro Puffs

Fried taro puffs: steamed taro with crunchy exterior

Taro puffs may not be the healthiest choice on the dim sum menu, but they’re quite tasty! I love the contrast of the two textures. Inside, there’s the nice steamed mash of taro root (usually combined with pork and mushrooms). Outside, there’s the crisp exterior with crunchy strands. If you’d love to make your own batch, here’s a recipe for them.

Exploding Myths


  1. I’ve never had those at dim sum! Next time I’m going to look for them. :D

  2. I’ve had Taro once and didn’t like it at all, but almost anything in batter or tempura makes it better. :)

      I think too much taro can overpower. It’s true about the batter, though. Well, I still haven’t tried deep-fried Snickers or anything like that, but some people rave about it!
