Sounds like a very tasty recipe - but can you offer some insight on how much dried shrimp or fungus is needed? is there a ratio???

Hi Vivian, I love this dish the moment I started trying out the recipe some 3 years ago. It is basically a meat ball recipe with radish to give a crunchy and lighter taste. The mushrooms or fungus also enhances the fragrance of the dish while dried shrimp gives it a more savory taste. For 1/2 radish and 300 g of meat, I would use about 2 tablespoons of dried shrimp (chop it they are the larger sized shrimp) and about 3 soaked mushrooms or 1 piece of black fungus. You could vary according to your personal preference. Hope that answers your question. Try it out and let me know the result.
