[Recipe] Steamed Carrot Cake With Seafood XO Sauce - 海皇XO酱蒸萝卜糕

Carrot Cake (萝卜糕) aka radish cake or chai tow kway is a popular dish eaten during Chinese New Year to symbolize "good fortune (好彩头)". Although there are a few different methods in making this traditional dish but generally shredded white radish is being mixed with the rice flour batter together with ingredients like dried shrimps, mushroom and Chinese sausage.

Despite being a new year dish, carrot cake is also one of the common dim sum items which often served in steamed or pan-fried version. Besides those you can also find another local version known as Fried Carrot Cake (菜头粿) which is stir-fried with eggs and preserved radish.
