Hawai’i: Grandma’s Taro Cake

Monday, December 26, 2011 2 No tags Permalink 0

Grandma dropped off a pan of taro cake this morning. She’s been working on some new dishes recently, and this is my favorite of the collection. An entire taro, steamed and grated, mixed with spices, eggs, and flour, pressed tight into a pan.

Refrigerate until cool then slice, slice, slice…

…into little rectangles.

Grease the pan, medium heat and fry both sides.

You want the surface golden, but the inside soft, almost creamy. Dip in a shoyu and sriracha mix…sometimes we heat sesame oil and stir that in as well. Afternoon pupus on the lanai, cold beer and dinner soon. Very glad to be back with family in Honolulu!

    Hi Kat! Aw, awesome! I feel like it's a healthier version of the taro cakes we get at dim sum.
