This is a dish we call lobak (Malaysia) / ngoh hiang (Singapore). Mom made this for Chinese New Year and when I came home, I was craving for it so I made some and froze a whole batch so that I could have them whenever I wanted. Somehow it tastes extra good with salad - 'umamicious'

Mom swears by the above 5 spice powder so we must get this particular brand. Note it is from Penang. Anyway, she gave me only one pack as she has to go to a specific shop to buy it.

Lobak is actually marinated pork with chopped onions/water chestnuts wrapped in a thin soya bean skin and deep fried. Mom was teaching K, my youngest brother how it is wrapped, note the photo above.

Are you hungry yet?
