Fried white radish cake, simply delicious !!

Fried white radish cake is one of the item that I must order when we take dim sum in restaurant. Actually this cake is very easy to be prepared at home, just use the steamed radish cake and pan fry it, and the ingredients and method are very similar to steamed taro cake.

These look so good I'm going to have to try them. Hopefully your white radish is also called a daikon because that's what avaiable here. I've never heard of these but as you can see I'm really curious.

Is a white radish the same as a daikon radish? The look fantastic...I'm very interested in dim sum dishes since there are not many restraunts around here that serve them. I would really like to try this.

Cheah said...

Sonia, this is a must have when I go for dim sum. I also like the one fried with egg, bean sprouts and with some 'choy poh'.

elra said...

Thank you so much!!!! I was looking for this recipe for quite sometimes. Thank you, I am bookmarking this as one of my next thing to make.

elra said...

It's me again, do I have to cook the radish before I shred, or the other way around? Thank you..

Preety said...

cake look so mouthwatering , amazing recipe..gotta try..

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Dear all, Thanks for your lovely words.

Dear new comer, welcome to my blog.

I just checked in Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daikon, Daikon radish=white radish

s, you may omit tapioca flour, but thought the texture will not so firm.

elra, shred first then only cook. Hope this help.

tigerfish said...

Radish cake also my favorite when ordering dim-sum but they seldom fry it to such crispiness like yours. Must be a lot of work making your own. I salute you!

IRENE said...

Hi Sonia,
Thanks for sharing yr recipe. I have tried making this radish kuih last nite & pan fried this morning. It turned out very successful (very crispy on the outside and inside soft). Wish you can try some and let me know your comment. Will try to fry with eggs & chai poh with the remaining kuih tonight & let you know what's like.

Thanks again.

Dumpling Love said...

Hi Sonia,
Thanks for the recipe! All the food you cook looks so delicious and I can't help but bookmark them to try! haha. I made this yesterday but for some reason, it came out quite firm. Not sure if it's because of the tapioca flour or if I should add more radish?

Anyway, thanks again for the recipe. I'll try it again =)
