芋头糕 Yam cake
This is my mother’s recipe and it is also her signature dish. My mom prepared this dish when she was in the Netherlands last year and my friends simply love it.
400g rice flour + 900ml water, mixed in a large bowl
1 medium size yam, cut into cubes
100g dried shrimps, chopped
100g shallots, sliced
3 sticks Chinese sausage
Sesame seeds & chopped chilies as garnish
Salt and pepper
Fry the shallots in a wok until golden brown. Drain and set aside.
Use the oil from the wok and sauté the dried shrimps, yam, mushroom and Chinese sausage till fragrant.
Stir in the rice flour solution keeping in mind to save a little for later use. Keep stirring till the whole mixture is gluey and thick.
Scoop into desired portions and flatten the surface. Drizzle the balance of the rice flour solution so that the surface will be smooth after 30-40 mins of steaming.
Serve with fried shallots, chilies and sesame seeds.
