Fried Carrot Cake 萝卜糕

Fried Carrot Cake 萝卜糕

I got a recipe from a chef and I was so eager to try it out! 

Every morning on my way to work, I always passed by a stall selling fried dim sum. I am not one who frequent fried food but somehow, those golden brown hue, and the warmth radiated from the fried dim sum in the cold morning was very appealing to me. So I often succumbed to my temptation, and I always ended up buying the same thing - fried carrot cake. 

I love my carrot cake soft. After fried, a crusty skin form around the soft savory cake and it is sooo good. But it is only true while it is still hot, or warm at the very least, cold soggy skin lost its attractiveness easily.

Coming back to this recipe, it is quite different from all other recipes that I have read. The batter is very runny, I almost doubted that it will ever harden at all. Most of other recipes call for cooking the batter till thick before steaming but not this one. Glad that I pressed on and didn't try to gek khiang (act smart in a Chinese dialect) and change the recipe. It turned out soft and savory just like what I have expected!

The hardest part is the waiting time. After steamed, you need to wait overnight before cutting and frying it. It won't be easy to cut as it is pretty soft. Deep frying will surely will help to retain its shape better but as a matter of preference, I simply pan-fried mine. 

Enough of the story, let's get cooking!
