Radish Cake (蘿蔔糕)


Anybody knows about Radish Cake?, we never forget to put this dim sum into the list when we yum cha. I love the crunchy layer on the ouside from frying and soft on the inside.

Radish cake is one of the the famous dish in Chinese New Year Festival.
For instance radish cake can slice into square pieces when cooled then pan-fried both side until golden and served with chilli sauce, hoisin sauce and or oyester sauce.

I found this recipe when walking around to this blog Best recipes, food and travel.  After first trial for me the batter is little bit hard, so on the second trial I add some ingridients and change the amount of the rice flour and water and also the method of cooking.

  2. 3 tablespoon dried shrimp, fried without oil until fragrant then pound roughly.
  3. 1 pc of chinese sausage (lap chiong), cunt into small cubes, fried without oil until fragrant. 
  4. 3pcs Shitake mushroom, cut into small cubes, fried without oil until fragrant. 
  5. 210 grams rice flor, 50 grams tapioka flour, mix and sieve together.
  6. 500 ml cool drink water.
  7. Salt, sugar, white pepper for seasoning.
  8. 2 tablespoon spring onion, cut into small pieces.
  9. 1 tablespoon white sesame seed.
Directions :
  1. In clean medium size bowl, put all the flour then  add water mix until well combine.
  2. Add cooked radish, dried shrimp, chinese sausage, shitake mushroom and seasoning, mix well.
  3. Then pour into medium size non stick cooking pan, cook until the batter thicken (half cooked).
  4. Prepare your steamer, add enough water, then put the half cooked batter into 20cm diameter baking pan, springkle with spirng onion and sesame seeds, steam for about 30 -45 minutes.
  5. Take out the pan let it cool,
