This Hot and Sour Soup is a Chinese restaurant classic which takes only 30 minutes!
Chinese New Year
As a child, my mother went to great lengths each year to prepare a Chinese New Year feast which could feed our entire neighbourhood.
The menu always featured a sticky rice cake filled with mung beans and pork, a Chinese Turnip Cake, endless platters of spring rolls (egg rolls), roast pork with gorgeously seasoned crackling – all served with fresh vermicelli noodles, picked carrots and daikon, and an abundance of fresh salad and herbs.
Recreate this Dim Sum specialty, Chinese Turnip Cake, at home with the delicious and authentic recipe. This recipe uses Chinese sausage and shiitake mushrooms for maximum flavour.
Chinese Turnip Cake
With Chinese New Year around the corner (on 28 January this year), I’m already thinking ahead to our lunch menu. Last year, we celebrated the event with some good friends at home, and my mum would have been proud of the spread which I created.
The menu included spring rolls (which Americans call “egg rolls”), fried rice, Chinese Tea Eggs, as well as these Chinese Turnip Cakes, or Daikon Radish Cake. The latter is a dish you might be familiar with if you are a fan of Dim Sum.
