Steamed Cabbage Rolls

This dish can be made with other vegetables such as carrot slices and eggplant slices. Daikon cabbage is called baicai (白菜) in Chinese, which sounds similar to hundred fortune(百财). Playing with similar phrases is one of the crucial cultures for new year’s eve dinner. That is why I choose to use baicai. The belief is that having one will lead to the other. I intentionally line the cabbage roll into cycles to create a flower so I can name this dish 花开百财, which means, flower blooms and fortune comes.
