Taro nest is a classic Chinese banquet dish – once it appears on the table, it disappears with lightning speed because it’s just that tasty. Mashed taro is formed into nests, deep fried to a delicious crisp and used as the base for chicken or vegetable fillings. Our recommendation is to use palm based shortening that is trans-fat free. We use fresh crab meat and chilli sauce as topping in this classic rendition. This recipe requires you to freeze the nests before frying, so do plan ahead!
This recipe makes 10 mini sized taro nests.
