 This recipe from The Adventures of Fat Rice, the August 2017 Cookbook Club selection may take a little work and ingredient hunting, but the spicy and crunchy result is well worth it.
From the Author: “Throughout the Portuguese-speaking world, bebinca basically describes something that has been steamed or baked to set. Also known as Bebinca de Nabo, turnip cake, white carrot cake, and chai tow kway, this dish isn’t really a cake per se, but more
of a steamed loaf. Confusing as hell but absolutely delicious.”
