Easy Chye Tow Kueh

After tasting success with the easy law pak ko, hubby and myself tried to convert it into an easy version of chye tow kueh too. The following is the result of several trials and error….

The chye tow kueh is firm enough to fry and is fluffy inside. Here’s the recipe:

Chye Tow Kueh


180g carrot, finely grated

750g white radish, coarsely grated

400g rice flour

4 tbsp potato starch

750ml tepid water

750ml boiling water

3 tsp salt

2 tsp sugar


1) Steam carrot for about 15 min or until soft. Set aside to cool.

2) Lightly poach the grated white radish in boiling water for 3 min to remove the strong earthy smell. Squeeze out most of the water and set aside. Don’t squeeze until the radish is dry; radish should still retain a little bit of water.

3) Combine rice flour and potato starch in a large bowl. Add tepid water and mix till flour is dissolved. Then stir in steamed carrot and poached radish and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine boiling water, salt and sugar. Add the boiling water mixture to the radish mixture and mix well.

4) Pour batter into a lightly oiled square tray (20cm x 20cm) or round tray (25cm – I used 27cm and steamed for 45 min) and spread evenly.

5) Steam for 45 min to 1 hr. Leave to cool to room temperature, then keep refrigerated until ready to use.

6) Before serving, cut into desired shape and size (ideally bite-size pieces), then pan-fry according to preference.
