12615303_980033245401471_1792481413738061556_o

材料(一底一斤糕)

蘿蔔(切粗條) 750克
冬菇粒 1 両
雞肉臘腸 2 條
蝦米 2 両
瑤柱 5粒
兩頭清湯鮑魚(切粒) 1隻
粘米粉 150克
粟粉 55克
水 500毫升

調味
鹽 10克
糖 25克
胡椒粉 少許
蒸瑤柱水 250毫升
做法
1. 先將瑤柱用1碗水蒸透,再泡浸1小時出味,拆成絲,汁水留用。蝦米放水浸1小時至軟身,刴成蝦米粒。雞肉臘腸蒸熟切粒。
2. 粘米粉及粟粉加兩碗水開成糊,用筲箕隔出粉粒。開鑊炒臘腸、冬菇及蝦米等配料。
3. 水煮滾,放蘿蔔煮15分鐘至軟身,加入鹽、糖、胡椒粉及瑤柱水調味,加入部分瑤柱絲及鮑粒。配料炒好後,將其中的三分二加入蘿蔔內,留下三分一加入瑤柱絲及鮑粒,待蒸好後鋪面。粉漿趁熱撞入蘿蔔材料內,拌成糊狀,此做法可避免材料沉底,蒸起來更均勻。
4. 放入蒸爐蒸1小時,將剩下臘味料鋪面,再蒸15分鐘即成。

貼士: 蘿蔔要選表面光身少根,拿上手要墜手,水分才夠。炒臘味料時不能用猛火,用中至小火炒出香味便可。

turnip cake

Ingredients
750g Turnip, shredded
1 tael Dried winter mushrooms
2 Preserved chicken sausages
2 tael Dried shrimp
5 Dried scallops
1 Abalone
150g Rice flour
55g Cornstarch
500ml Water
10g Salt
25g Sugar
250ml Juice left from steaming dried scallops
White pepper

Preparation Methods
1. Put dried scallops in a bowl of water and steam. Leave to soak for another hour. Shred scallops into and save the juice for later. Soak dried shrimp in water for 1 hour until soft. Julienne dried shrimp. Steam and chop preserved sausages into pieces.
2. In two separate bowls, add water to rice flour and corn starch to form two bowls of mixture. Sieve the mixture to remove lumps.
3. In a wok, stir fry preserved sausage, winter mushrooms and dried shrimps.
4. In a pot of boiling water, cook turnips for 15 minutes until soft, add salt, sugar, white pepper and scallop juice. Add some of the scallops and abalone.
5. Add two-third of the stir-fry to the turnips. Add the remaining scallops and abalone to the remaining stir-fry and save them for decoration purpose.
6. Pour mixtures into turnips while they are still hot and mix well together. Mixing them can avoid the stir fry from sinking to the bottom.
7. Steam for 1 hour and sprinkle the remaining stir-fry on top. Steam for another 15 minutes. Done!

Tips
**Turnips within shiny and smooth skin are preferred. Best if they are heavy.
**Use medium or low heat for the stir-fry.
