Turnip Cake (Chinese New Year) 蘿蔔糕

1 kg Chinese white turnip (daikon)
170 gm rice flour
4 Tbsp wheat starch
40 gm Chinese sausage (臘腸)
45 gm Chinese mushrooms (冬菇)
3/4 cup unsalted chicken broth
pinch of white pepper

- Blanch Chinese sausage and Chinese mushrooms in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes for cleaning and easy chopping.  (Drain well and finely diced.)
- Peel the turnip and grate into thick strips.
In a big bowl, mix the rice flour with wheat flour well.
- Add 2 tablespoons of oil in a wok, sauté Chinese sausage and Chinese
mushrooms dices over medium heat. (Continue to sauté until aromatic.)
- Sprinkle white pepper to taste. 
- Pour in chicken broth, bring to a boil, cover and cook until tender and translucent.
Remove from heat. Add rice flour and wheat starch, quickly combine all ingredients into a thick batter.
Pour the mixture into a greased tray, 8-inch round.
- Steam over high heat with cover, about 45 to 60 minutes.

Check the water level and replenish, if necessary, with boiling water. Insert a chopstick into the middle part. If it comes out clean, the cake is cooked through. Let cool and refrigerate with cover for around 4 hours.

* Cut into pieces, fry both sides until golden brown. Serve hot, accompanying with chili sauce or with soy sauce.
