Fried taro dumplings

Everyone should experience the contrasting textures of fried taro dumplings (wu gok), one of my favorite dishes. The shell of this dumpling is made from soft taro root paste and the filling is minced pork. Upon deep-frying, the crispy shell reminds me of the spiky hair of a rabid sports fan. The sensation of the fluffy light shell is quickly followed by the steamy, creamy flavor of the taro and, finally, the slightly salty pork filling. The combination of flavors and textures is unique.
