Although there is carrot in the name, this famous Singaporean street vendor snack contains no carrots. Instead, it is a savory cake made from shredded white radishes. The cake gets cut into cubes that are wok-fried to a golden brown with garlic and chilis. Chai Tow-Kway is usually topped with toasted chilis and fried shallots. The delightful treats are crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside.
