Turnip Cake

Yields: 1 Serving Difficulty: Medium Prep Time: 10 Mins Cook Time: 50 Mins Total Time: 1 Hr

Today I am sharing a  different and unique recipe in India. This recipe is healthy and easy to prepare but little time needed. I tried this recipe and never disappointed in taste. So I am sharing this healthy and unique recipe with you all.

Yes. This recipe’s name is Turnip cake or Chinese dim sum dish. We can call it Radish Idli or steam.  This name itself is unique. Many members think it is sweet but not. This cake is filled with vegetables so everyone can have it. Personally felt that I must try the recipe, but it was a little time consuming. This turnip cake is made with shredded radish and rice flour. This turnip cake is crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. Usually radish is used in the Asian kitchen, but it is different in the taste and recipe.

I have added the vegetable carrot and radish in equal ratio. For the spices I have added pepper powder, dry garlic and ginger powder, additionally you can add chat masala or garam masala powder. I used rice flour to prepare the batter. Instead of this you can soak some rice and grind it to a smooth paste and prepare a thick batter. 

In a cake mold pour the mix and steam it like idli or kadubu. After steaming, cut into pieces.Have it with Green chutney otherwise you can roast it or deep fry it. Once you’re done with pieces, roast like a cutlet. If you are on a healthy diet or oil freak then steam it and have it as it is.


This turnip cake is crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. Usually radish is used in the Asian kitchen, but it is different in taste and recipe. We can prepare this recipe as a breakfast, dinner or tea time snack. Kids will love their snack box or lunch box too.
