Potato Crabmeat Patties 马铃薯蟹肉饼
A very interesting and delicious snack.
Recipe adapted from Amy Beh of Cook's Nook, Star paper.
I have made some amendment on the original recipe
45g cooked crab meat (can be replaced by prawns)
50g shredded carrot
2 white button mushrooms, finely diced
1 tsp oil
40 g diced onion
1 tbsp chopped spring onion
1 tsp chopped red chili
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp chicken stock granules ( I omitted and use 1 tbsp of oyster sauce and 1 tsp of fish sauce)
1 tsp cornflour ( I use 1 tbsp to make the patties firmer)
Scrub potatoes clean and place in a saucepan.
cover with water and bring to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are cooked and tender.
Drain and leave to cool. Peel and mash the potatoes.
Heat oil and saute onion, carrot and mushrooms. Add salt, pepper and chicken stock granules. Dish out the mixture and leave aside to cool then mix with mashed potatoes, crab meat, spring onion and chili. Add cornflour to mix.
Divide potato mixture into equal portions. Shape each into a pattie. Pan fry patties for 2-3 minutes each side or until golden and heated through.
Serve with chili sauce and mayonnaise.
My own version of making the mayonnaise dipping -
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 tbsp condensed milk
1 tbsp or to adjust lemon juice.
Mix and combine the above. Tada! The sauce is ready!
