1. Steamed the shredded turnip for 10 minutes, keep all the water that comes out of the turnip along. Nothing’s wasted.

2. Heat up a deep fry pan with the oil, fry the vegetables until fragrant. Then pour the steamed turnip into the mix carefully without breaking too much the shape of the turnip slices, add sesame oil in. Turn off the heat.

3. Mix the flours with the water, add sugar, white pepper power, dried onion and salt. Stir until there’s no clumps.

4. Pour the flour mixture into the fry pan with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. The consistence cannot be too watery. Depends on your preference, if you like it denser, then add less water into the mixture.
