Note in bold are what I used for 1/2 portion to make 1 loaf pan of radish cake.

Ingredients

1 kg Chinese white radish (daikon), shredded
I used 500g shredded daikon

170 g rice flour
85g rice flour

4 Tablespoons wheat starch
2 tablespoons wheat starch

40 gm Chinese sausage (臘腸)
I used 40g sausage as I didn’t used the Chinese bacon

45 gm Chinese bacon (臘肉) – I replace with the same quantity of Chinese sausage
I omitted

55 gm Chinese dried shrimps
I omitted

60 gm salted radish
2 tablespoons of salted radish – soaked for 10min.

2 shallots, thinly sliced
3 shallots, chopped

3/4 cup (180ml) unsalted chicken broth
I used 90ml chicken stock from prepack.

pinch of white pepper

Instructions –

Steam the Chinese sausage (and Chinese bacon, if using) for about 5 minutes. Once steamed, let them cool before finely dicing them.

I skipped this steaming method.

If you are using dried radish, soak them in warm water for about 10-15 minutes before chopping them into small pieces.

I used ready chopped dry radish. So soak in water for 10min.

Similarly, soak the dried shrimps in warm water also for 10-15 minutes. If the shrimps are big, chop them into smaller pieces. I used smaller shrimps so I left them whole.

In a large bowl, mix together rice flour and wheat starch. Set this aside.

Add a little oil into a heated wok. Fry the Chinese sausage (and Chinese bacon) for a minute or so.

I didn’t add oil. I used the oil from the sausage instead.

Add dried shrimps and fry until fragrant.

Add dried radish and fry a further one to two minutes. Transfer this into a bowl and set aside.

In the same wok, add a little more oil. Fry the shallots until they are soft

Add radish and stir-fry for a couple of minutes.Season with white pepper. Add chicken (or vegetable) stock.

I added chicken stock.

Cover the wok and cook over medium heat until the radish has turned tender and translucent. This will take about 4-5 minutes. Once cooked, transfer this (carefully) into a large bowl. Add the flours and stir to mix.

Add the cooked ingredients and stir until well-distributed. You should be able to stir the mixture without needing much force. If you find that you need to put in quite a bit of effort to stir, add a little water.

Transfer the mixture into a lightly greased 7×7-inch pan, or 8-inch round pan, or 2 9×5-inch loaf pans.

I used a disposable loaf pan.

Smooth the tops and steam over high heat for 45 minutes to 1 hour. To test if the cake is done. insert a chopstick into the cake. If it emerges cleanly, then it is ready.

I used electric steamer and steam for 45min.

Cool the cake, wrap with cling film and refrigerate for 4 hours before cutting into pieces and pan-frying them with a little oil. Alternatively, you can also eat the cake as is, garnished with chopped spring onion, fried shallots and sliced chili.
