    FLKeysJen's Note:

    The unusual name of this traditional dish refers to the crunchy sound the salted and barely cooked radish slivers make when you bite them. From the Revolutionary Chinese Cookbook,this is easy to make, and pretty with the white, red and green colors.

    Units: US | Metric

    Cornstarch Paste

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel the radish and cut into 2 1/2-inch sections; cut each section first into very thin slices, and then into fine slivers; combine with 3/4 teaspoon salt, then set aside for 15 minutes.
    2. 2
      Discard the stems and seeds of the chili, and cut into fine slivers to match the radish; cut the scallion greens into similar slivers.
    3. 3
      Drain the radish slivers and squeeze dry; set aside.
    4. 4
      Mix the cornstarch and water into a paste.
    5. 5
      Heat the wok over a high flame until smoke rises, then add the peanut oil and swirl around. Add the chili and sizzle for a few seconds before adding the radish slivers. Stir-fry vigorously for a couple minutes, adding the soy sauce and salt to taste, if necessary.
    6. 6
      When the radish slivers are hot, add the scallions and vinegar and stir well to combine. Add the cornstarch paste to the middle of the wok, stirring rapidly as it thickens to a gloss. Finally, remove the wok from the heat, stir in the sesame oil, and serve.

      I made this just as listed, except I used about 1/2 as much oil. It was a very nice side dish, - perfect for when you want something a little out of the ordinary. I had not eaten daikon cooked this way before and given the ingredients, I was surprised by how mild it become when stir fried. Be sure and not overcook the radish, because it looses its crunch pretty quickly.

      This is super simple and delicious Asian vegetable side dish that goes really well with steamed white rice. I eat daikon often but not as stir fry and I was pleasantly surprised how wonderful daikon can be fixed this way. Thanks Jen for posting this recipe - I will be making this dish often.
