Mixed all the ingredients together with the above-mentioned seasonings preferably by hand to bind everything together. (the final mixture will be a bit sticky and dry, if it is too wet, add in more flour/butter crackers to bind it) 4. Leave the combined ingredients in the fridge for about 20 to 30 minutes to rest the ingredients and let it developed a better flavour before wrapping. 5. After settling the ingredients, use a damp cloth to slowly wipe off all the surface of the dried beancurd sheet to remove excess salt and oil on it so that the end products will not taste too salty. 6. Next fold the clean beancurd sheet into quarter rectangles, then cut each long

rectangle into another 4 small equal rectangle which makes a total of 16 small individual sheets of wrapper. 7. Spoon meat mixture into each beancurd sheet and wrapped tightly like a spring roll, leaving the seam side facing down. 8. While rolling half of the portion, heat up the steamer, brush a thin layer of cooking oil on the steamer rack before arranging the Ngoh Hiang on it so that they won't stick on the rack after steaming. 9. When the water boils, put in the steamer rack with the Ngoh Hiang and steam it over medium high heat for about 15 minutes for the 1st batch and 10 minutes for the subsequent batches if your steamer is not able to steam all the Ngoh Hiang at one go. 10. After steaming leave them to cool off before freezing them for later consumption if you are not going to finished all of them in a day or two. 11. When the Ngoh Hiang is cooled, heat up a pot with suitable amount of oil, deepfry the Ngoh Hiang on medium low heat till both side turn golden colour then increase the heat to High and fry for a few second before removing it and drained well. 12.
