Typical food to watch the game with include - Buffalo Wings, Chips with Exotic Dips, Burgers, Ribs, Popcorn, Pizzas - Snacks in every permutation you can think of - washed down of course, with free flowing beer, what else?
Today, the 2010 World Cup raises its curtains and will proceed to hypnotise millions of football fans around the world. We have a new product launch scheduled later this month, right in the middle of the games and one customer actually asked me why the hell are we doing the event during World Cup month?
' People take leave to stay at home to watch games! The stock market will be sleepy... business trips will be postponed!' Yeah, yeah, yeah... I am no football fan, I support the team with the good looking players.
Anyway, for those who plan to have a party gathering at home for the games, here's a tasty snack with an Asian twist that is guranteed to please. I think I have seen this done by a few fellow bloggers before but I can't recall who they are. But this is from a cookbook I have which features minced meat dishes - "Grounded Meat Sancks" (巧手绞肉小吃店). The Tofu Puffs (available from Chinese grocery stores) are slit and inverted to have the spongy inner layer exposed. Minced meat is then stuffed into the pocket and deep fried. Very easy to make and always a crowd pleaser - especially when dipped in Sweet Chilli Sauce...
12 beancurd puff
150g Minced pork
150g Fish paste
50g Shelled prawns (chopped)
1 stalk Continental parsely
1 Egg white
1tbsp Tapioca flour
1/2 tsp Chicken powder (optional)
1tsp Sesame Oil
1. To make filling, mix minced pork, fish paste, chopped prawns and remaining ingredients (except Tofu Puff) and seasoning and blend until paste becomes sticky.
2. Make a small cavity of each beancurd puff, turn over the inside. Next stuff in filling mixture until full. Deep-fry at low heat first, then high heat till golden brown. Remove, drain and serve with Chilli sauce.
