DIRECTIONS

  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add mushrooms, shrimp and sausages and sauté for 1/2 minute.
  • Remove from skillet and set aside. Heat 1 more tablespoon oil in wok/skillet. Add ginger and sauté a bit.
  • Add shredded turnips and stir fry for about 3 minutes (do NOT remove turnip water). Add 5-spice powder, salt, chicken bouillon and white pepper and toss all together until evenly distributed.
  • Extract ginger slices from mixture.
  • Turn off heat. Top turnip mixture with rice flour and use chopsticks to toss and mix flour in evenly. Add reserved sausage mixture and toss to mix inches.
  • Remove mixture from wok/skillet and place into a 9x2 inch deep round cake pan.
  • Clean wok/skillet, fill with water and bring to a boil. Place cake pan on a round wire rack over boiling water.
  • Reduce heat to low and let simmer, steaming cake 'batter', for 45 minutes. (Note: you can also use a large bamboo steamer if you have one).
  • When 'cake' is steamed through, slice into pieces and serve hot or cool on wire rack before covering tightly with plastic wrap and placing in refrigerator to chill.
