Despite the name, a turnip cake does not actually include turnips. The core ingredients of this dish are shredded daikon radish, sometimes known as “Chinese turnip,” and rice flour. The radish and rice flour are mixed with water to make a thick batter which is poured into a mold and steamed. After steaming, the turnip cake can be cut into pieces and eaten as-is, or it can be cooked again, most classically in a frying pan, and served.
