Use of Leftover 5: Stir-fried Radish Cake



My hubby bought back a stir-fry radish cake with eggs for dinner the other day from Denver along with salt and pepper pork ribs and fried rice noodle. Needless to say we couldn't finish the radish cake. For the picture above, I already cut the radish cake into smaller pieces. It came in big square pieces like those served in a Dim Sum restaurant. Frankly this radish cake with eggs was a bit bland to me. It seem like it has more rice flour than radish in the mix.



I love fry radish cake with chai por (sweeten turnips) and in dark soy sauce so I prepared the above for lunch the next day. I added red bell pepper, green onion and garlic. I didn't add any egg because it already came with eggs. What a great way to turn something bland into something delicious ya?

Fried "Cai Tao Kweh" is a local breakfast that sells in the hawker centre every day.

Another fattening dish...gosh sooner or later, i wil be the one who need to keep fit in order to read your food gourmet blog...

It fries in salted "cai po" and eggs only, either in white (no sweet dark sauce) or black(with sweet dark sauce).

The white version is more on the crispy side cos no added sauce.

while the black tastes sweet and is slight on the sticky texture due to the sweet dark sauce added in.

Both of them can go with or without chilli paste.

Hehe mikky, yup got to have leftover. If not you can buy the prepackaged block of radish cake in the refrigerator section.

Oh Peony, that will go well together!

Jackie, I noticed that Malaysian like their version black while Singaporean more toward white, for example Hokkein mee. I like my version in black sauce so I like my sweet dark soy sauce or dark soy sauce. :P

Pearl, I live in Colorado Springs. :)

Thanks Ling, long time no see ya!
