Here is something that looks so appealing you won’t have the heart to bite into it; but it smells and tastes so appetizing you just cannot help devouring it!
Scrumptious taro nest prepared with noodles and cornflour is topped with a warm salad of mixed vegetables, soya sauce, honey and other ingredients, to create a irresistible starter.
The veggies in the salad are minimally sautéed so that their flavour is enhanced without losing the crunch. Assemble the Taro Nest with Warm Salad just before serving.
- Spread the parboiled noodles on a kitchen towel and keep aside for 20 minutes.
- Transfer the noodles into a bowl or plate, add the cornflour and salt and toss gently.
- Divide the noodles into 2 equal portions.
- Place 1 portion of the noodles in a strainer to make a basket, along the mesh of the strainer.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, hold the strainer with the noodles in the hot oil as shown in the image 1.
- Keep pouring the oil all over the noodles evenly and deep-fry till it turns golden brown in colour from all the sides, as shown in the image 2.
- Remove the taro nest carefully from the strainer and place on an absorbent paper.
- Repeat steps 4 to 6 to make 1 more nest. Keep aside.
