五香蜂巢芋角 (Fried Taro Dumplings / Wu Gok)



芋角或者俗称“午咯 Wu Gok”是点心楼的必备的点心之一。
托这个月最佳食谱的福,终于也出现在安家的厨房里了。 
虽然卖相无法跟外面茶楼大师傅们的比美,
但是味道却令人满意的。


经过亲自体验,各人的结论是:欲想炸出漂亮的蜂巢芋角;
首先油量需充足使整颗芋角浸泡油内,
然后暴热的火候,同时数颗芋角一起炸,
这样分散了过高的热度,芋角在适度的火候下,
既能爆出蜂巢效果,同时也呈金黄色的外貌。



五香蜂巢芋角
共做8个

皮料:
300 克芋头(蒸熟, 压成泥)
80克 澄粉
40克 白油/奶油
80克沸水
1/2茶匙 黄糖
1/2茶匙 苏打粉
1/4茶匙 五香粉
1/4茶匙 盐

馅料:
80克 瘦肉,切丁
80克 胶肉
20克 红萝卜,切丁
20克 冷冻青豆
1个 大葱,切丁
1茶匙 爆香芝麻

调味料:
1大匙蚝油, 1/4茶匙黑酱油, 1/4茶匙盐,1茶匙糖,  适量胡椒粉
1大匙粟粉  + 3大匙清水(勾芡)

做法:
1. 锅里烧热2大匙油, 爆软大葱丁, 加入瘦肉丁和胶肉炒香, 加入红萝卜丁, 炒匀, 加入调味料炒匀,加入青豆炒拌均匀。 最后加入芡水拌匀。盛起, 备用。
2. 将澄粉和苏打粉混合置盆里, 冲入沸水, 快速的以筷子搅拌均匀, 揉成团。
3. 加入芋泥, 白油/奶油以及其余的材料, 揉至均匀成软团。平分成8份, 包入馅料成芋角。
4. 热炸油, 将芋角放入热油中炸至金黄色或蜂巢状, 捞起即可。


温馨建议:
欲炸出蜂巢效果的芋角,油量必须可以让整颗芋角浸透,火候务必要够暴热。 同时数颗芋角一起炸,这样分散了热度,炸出来的芋角是金黄色并带蜂巢效果。


 很喜欢这次的芋头,白净松糯。
在选购芋头时,选长得饱满圆滚滚,外皮干净无烂,
同时以手指往芋身,弹弹几下,
听到清脆的声音,一般芋肉都
会松糯。




高温滚油,数颗一起炸,就能炸出 美美的蜂巢芋角了

4. Deep fry with high heat oil until golden colour or honeycomb-like. Dish up and serve hot.


Tips:
To produce honeycomb-like Wu Gok, sufficient oil is needed to cover the whole Wu Gok. Fry them over very high heat, a few balls at a time, so that the heat energy can be shared among the Wu Goks to obtain a nice golden color with honeycomb-like pattern.
