About

This dish is also known as fried carrot cake ,is very famous among Malaysians here.It is a popular chinese hawker food ,with a dark coloring due to the generous amount of dark soy sauce used to the dish.

The first step of making the Kuih Loh Bak is preparing the radish cake, rice flour is mixed with grated radish and then steamed.It is later stir fried using eggs.You can also make it spicy and add in prawns to give different flavour.But the most common style that one can come across frequently in any hawker stalls would be the recipe which I am sharing today.
I have used wheat starch for the cake ,but some do substitute it with cornflour. There, of course will be a slight texture difference .
