Steamed radish cake is a very traditional dim sum dish that’s often served in dim sum restaurants. It’s affordable to make, and can be whipped up simply for a party at your home!
While many recipes out there introduce the radish cake by pan frying it, we’ll explore steaming this radish & rice flour combo by adding in chinese wine sausage and dried shrimps – the end result is mouthfuls of savoury bliss meant for a nice home-cooked dim sum treat!
