I made this the non traditional way. It tasted quite good. When I go for dim sum this is one of my favorites. I have also made it from scratch the traditional way. It was a ton of work and took forever. This way is quite quick and easy to do. Well worth the effort! It is made with the daikon radish. I’m not sure why it is called turnip cake because there are no turnips in it. Anyway it’s quite delicious!
