Pan-Fried Radish Cake



This Pan-Fried Radish Cake or also known as Lo Bak Gao is the popular dish that you can get at most Dim Sum restaurants. For this recipe, I have added some dried shrimps and scallions for flavoring. As for the batter, I used the combination of rice flour, corn starch and potato powder. The latter will give a firmer texture. If you can't find any potato powder, then replace it with wheat starch.





Pan-Fried Radish/Turnip Cake (Lo Bak Gao)

Ingredients

Steamed Radish Cake
550 grams Grated Radish/Daikon/Turnip
200 grams Rice Flour
40 grams Potato Powder or Wheat Starch
20 grams Corn Starch
1 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
½ tsp Freshly Ground White Pepper
2 Scallions, sliced
4 Tbsp Crispy Dried Shrimps
Oil for pan-frying
1000ml Water

Method

In a medium bowl, mix in the rice flour, potato powder, sea salt, white pepper, water and whisk well.

In a large pan or wok, fry the dried shrimps until crispy. Remove and set aside. Then add the scallions and grated radish. Stir-fry until soften, about 5 minutes.

Pour the flour mixture and keep stirring until the batter thickens, about 1 1/2 minutes. Then pour the thick mixture into a baking pan or tray. Smooth the top and steam the batter for about 40 to 50 minutes, or until the batter is set.

Remove the radish cake and let cool completely before slicing.

To make the pan-fried radish cake: Slice the radish cake into ¼ or ½ inch thick, and pan fry until golden color. Serve warm with some chili sauce, if desired.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
