Water Chestnut Cake Recipe

Water Chestnut Cake Recipe

Ingredients :

225 g canned water chestnuts, drained

220 g caster sugar

220 g water chestnut flour

4 tablespoons corn oil

3 tablespoons vegetable oil


Method :

Cut the canned water chestnuts into matchstick-sized pieces. Use a saucepan to place the cut water chestnuts, sugar and 2 cups water. Bring to the boil. Stir in the water chestnuts flour and add another 2 cups of water. Stir to mix well, then simmer for 5 minutes. Add the corn oil, stir and bring once more to the boil. Reduce heat to very low and simmer gently for 5 minutes.


Use a square can tin to pour in the mixture and place in a steamer to steam for 30 minutes. Remove from the steamer and set aside to cool. When cold, the water chestnut is similar to a firm jelly with streaks of water chestnuts inside. Cut the cake into pieces as thin as bread slices. Heat up a frying pan with vegetable oil. When hot, fry each slice of the water chestnut cake for 2.5 minutes on each side. Serve hot or cold.
