Method

Take cubed potatoes and place in a large plastic (microwave proof) bowl.  (The potatoes will cook quicker if not packed too densely – bigger bowl in thinner layer works best!).

Rinse cubes with water, drain, place back into bowl and add a small splash of water,  garlic and Chinese 5 spice.  Cover with plastic plate or cling film and cook.

Cook, shake bowl and stand for 1 minute.  Drain, add knob of butter and mash.  Add beansprouts, carrot, pak choi, seasoning and 2tbsp plum sauce. Mix well together.

Take handfuls of the mixture, shape into a ball and then flatten.  The mixture should make about 8.  Lightly dust with flour.

Heat oil in a frying pan and carefully cook squeaks (the mixture is a little fragile) for 2-3 minutes each side until golden brown – you may need to wipe out the pan half way through & use clean oil.  Drain ‘squeaks’ on kitchen paper

Serve scattered with spring onions and plum sauce for dipping.
