About this recipe: Yam cake is a favorite with us. The fried yam, shallots and mushrooms make it very fragrant. We usually pan-fry rather than steam it.


  • ½ kg yam, diced
  • 6 dried mushrooms, soaked until soft, chopped
  • 1 cup dried shrimps, pounded
  • 6 shallots, sliced
  • 1 tsp salt + 2 tsp salt (separated)
  • Light soy sauce to taste
  • 1 bowl rice flour (about 500g)
  • 2 bowls water
  • A dash of pepper


  1. Fry together the yam, mushrooms, dried shrimps, shallots, 1 tsp salt and light soy sauce until the yam is cooked (ie. soft).
  2. Add in the rice flour, water, pepper and 2 tsp salt and stir together. Stir-fry until well-combined and a thick paste is formed. Flatten into a pan and steam for 1 hour on medium heat.
  3. Slice the yam cake and pan-fry until golden brown on both sides. Serve.
