Radish Cake (Law Pak Koh)

Today I came with a my most favorite dim sum dish called Radish/Daikon/Turnips Cake or even some people(Malaysian) do called it Carrot Cake.It was one of the signature dish were served in dim sum restaurants around the globe.This Radish cake is one of our favorite dim sum dish where come first item to order whenever we visited a dim sum restaurant.
I prefer homemade version is much more tastier,yummier and cheaper than any of the dimsum restaurant and its easy to make at home too.Everytime I steamed this cake I do stir fry it by cut the steamed cake into small pieces and fried them with egg,beansprouts,garlic and chives with hint of chilli as same as Chai Tow Kway(fried carrot cake).
