Learn to make Radish Cakes 蘿蔔糕

9 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

I work in a Chinese restaurant here in Taipei, Taiwan and we'd like to present a video teaching you how to make Radish Cakes! Many of you may know this popular dim sum dish by its Cantonese name "Lo Bak Go".

This is our own personal variation on the traditional Radish Cake, so you'll see something a bit different than you're used to!

 

Enjoy the video, hope you have as much fun watching as we did making!

Also if anyone has any questions about Chinese or Taiwanese cooking I'm happy to answer!

@liuzhou you are absolutely correct, that's a mistake on my part in the subtitles!  The order got messed up going from Chinese to English :P  Thanks for the catch!

 

For anyone else wondering, hot wok cold oil will also help your proteins not stick :smile:

@kbjesq no problem, have fun making it!

 

I've never seen pumpkin cake here in Taiwan, but perhaps as @liuzhou says it is common in China.  There are some pretty big regional differences when it comes to culinary arts between the Chinese populations of the world!  In any case I don't see any reason why you couldn't use pumpkin instead of Daikon!  Experiment and have fun! :smile:
