STIR FRIED RADISH CAKE / CHAI TOU KUIH



I just don't believe it I finally made this. Have been craving for this dish for quite sometimes. This is a Chinese favourite breakfast menu that you couldn't find in any Malay food stall. The only way to satisfy your need is DIY. Thank God I found the recipe in mishua blog. I just need to know how to prepared the radish cake, the frying part is something similar to any fried noodles. Thanks to msihua, it was a wonderful dish and somehow It reminiscent the Malay "Lontong Goreng"
Radish Cake Ingredients)
Adapted from msihua.logspot

600g of shredded White Radish (Daikon)
3 tablespoons of water
200g rice flour
250ml water
Salt
Sugar
 Method:
 1)Add 3 tablespoons of water to the shredded radish. Steam radish in wok until it turns translucent. This should take 20 – 30 mins on a low flame. Take radish out and leave it to cool while you prepare the flour mixture.
2)Add a pinch of salt and sugar into your flour and mix with water. Stir the mixture thoroughly to remove any lumps.
3)Combine the radish with the flour mixture and mix thoroughly.
4)Pour your final mixture into a round cake tin (we used a square cake tin instead) and steam in wok for 30 – 35 minutes over a medium-high flame.
5)Take the radish cake out and leave it to cool for a few hours. This should give it a better texture.
6)Once the radish cake is cooled. Cut out 1 quarter of it and keep the rest in the refrigerator.
7)Cut the quarter into smaller chunks (cubes).

  • Bean sprouts (optional)

Heat oil and add your radish cake. Fry till the edges are brown and crispy-looking.
Add in garlic, shrimps and preserved turnip. At this stage, you might find that the pan is a little dry. If that’s the case, add another teaspoon of oil. Fry till garlic is fragrant.
Now, add the chilli paste. Stir thoroughly and add the egg in. Add the fish sauce and a dash of pepper. Toss in the sliced chilli and some spring onions. Fry till the egg cooks.
Add the remaining spring onions and bean sprouts in and turn the flame off. Give a quick stir before plating up.

Selalu lihat resipi ini dalam program masakan, tapi alahai ini merupakan masakan Cina yang cuma dihidangkan dalam restuarant Cina..tapi kalau tekak dah berhajat kenalah buat sendiri. Sebenarnya resipi ini lebih kurang membuat lontong goreng, cara memasaknya tidaklah susah macam kita goreng mee atau CKT tetapi nak buat radish keknya. Menggunakan lobak putih yang dibancuh dengan tepung beras..macam buat kuih talam dibiarkan sejukan seeloknya semalaman kemudian dipotong dan goreng.  Sedap ini buat sajian sarapan pagi...taurkan bawang goreng, daun bawang dan kacang tanah tumbuk.  YUm...yum.....
