Turnip Cakes

Lo Bak Go in Chinese. Though they are made with Daikon Raddish they are called Turnip Cakes . It only requires some patience .
Recipe from the Internet
Delicious to the core. We can variate with the spices. Normally they use Shrimp but I found a recipe that used Mushrooms.

500 GMs Raddish
225 GMs rice flour
8-10 mushroom chopped
4-5 tbsp spring onion chopped with the greens( about 1 whole large Spring onion)
3-4 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp white pepper pwd / black pepper
Salt to taste
2 tsps oil
Oil for frying
A vessel to steam
4 -5 cups water

Wash , peel n grate the Radish. Pour enough water in the Raddish so that the entire Raddish is just about submerged
Keep it to cook. After it comes to a boil reduce the flame and cook till the Raddish is tender.
Heat 2 tsps oil tip in the garlic and add the mushrooms and spring onions with salt and cook on high heat till the mushrooms dry up. Add the pepper pwd . Reserve

Now add salt to the Raddish . Mix in the mushrooms Mix in the rice flour to the warm mix . It should have a very soft doughy look ( like Khichu)
Spread in a cake tin or dhokla thali and steam for about 45 mins, to an hour. Cool
Keep in the fridge overnight
Cut into pieces and deep fry or shallow fry
Garnish with Spring onion greens n roasted garlic
Serve with a black pepper sauce or a sauce of your choice

For the black pepper sauce
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 1/2 tbsp vinegar/ balsamic vinegar
1 tsp sugar
4-5 cloves garlic crushed
2-3 green chillies crushed
1/2 tsp black pepper pwd
3 tbsp Spring onion greens minced
Salt to taste
2 tsp oil

Heat the oil . Add the crushed garlic n green chillies. Sauté for a minute. Add the Spring onion greens sauté, add the black pepper pwd, soya sauce n sugar. Add a little salt and vinegar. As it starts bubbling take it off the heat. Your sauce is ready

I tried making it in the airfryer but I guess somethings are meant to be fried
