Taro cakes, Cantonese specialty snacks, are also a must-have snack for every restaurant and tea house.
The initial impression of taro cakes was a stall in a vegetable market. There were a large stack of steamers filled with radish cakes and taro cakes. They were cut into small pieces and put in a bowl, and topped with sauce. The warm one is especially delicious. Later, when the vegetable market moved, I also went to school, and never ate the taro cake from the stall owner again.

1. Sticky rice noodles are rice noodles, which can be bought in general vegetable farms and supermarkets.
2. Lipu taro is more fragrant and waxy, and softer after frying.
3. If you don't have dried shrimps, use dried shrimps instead. If you don't like seafood, just leave it alone.
4. The raw and cooked pulp is too thick and the finished product tastes hard; too thin, the finished product is soft and sticky. When making rice syrup, the ratio of sticky rice flour to the total amount of liquid is about 2:3, which is not a fixed value, and the amount of water should be adjusted according to the actual situation.
5. The taro cake can be eaten hot with a saucepan, or it can be sliced and fried after cooling.
