Steamed Radish Cake

A good healthy savoury breakfast to start your day with. With lots of dried shrimps and shitake mushrooms, it is still flavourful without the addition of chinese sausage and bacon. You can make this in advance and keep in the fridge. If you prefer your radish cake to be firmer, reduce water as indicated in recipe.
