Stir Fried Radish Cake @ Chai Tou Kueh 炒菜头粿

Can't believe it myself! I am making my own stir fried radish cake. Stir fried radish cake is a common street food and also dim sum dish over here. Honestly, I can easily buy this from the nearby stall for just RM2.50 per packet. And I love it spicy and also with extra red sweet sauce. Hmm...mmmm... salivating just by mentioning it! haha..... Well, this post is actually a special dedication to Elra under her special request. So, are you ready?
