Fried Chiku

Some people called it Nigku and some people called it Chiku.My mom told me the bigger is called Chiku and the smaller one called Nigku.I remember last 10 years ago,nobody use Chiku as a snack for Chinese New Year delicacies.I would love to know who the person who invent this snack .Anyone ?. I bought 2 kilo of fresh Chiku at RM0.50 each kilo.My mom happily assist me in making this snack.

How it's look?
Storing in the container for my TV snack
I shredded the chiku as you can see,wash with salt water and let it dried before frying in the clean oil until golden brown.
My mom peeled the chiku for me to shred.
It's look like water chestnut,right?
My mom also grown some of this chiku as indoor and out door plant for display for every Chinese New Year.

I'm going to stew some of this chiku with meat .It's also a very famous Chinese Malaysian dish.Overall,fried chiku or ngiku is really easy and simply to make if you don't mind peeling and shredding..Viola!I have another new snack for me to snack when I'm back to NY!!

I love these chips. To me, they taste better than potato chips. But sadly only get to eat them once a year.
