"These crispy savory cakes are a unique and tasty way to enjoy daikon radish. Like an Asian twist on a modified latke recipe. If you like spiciness and the bitter taste of radish, you'll love this recipe. If not, give it a try anyway, dipped in ketchup, sour cream, miso mayo, jam, or whatever floats your boat."

  1. Place the daikon in a large bowl and sprinkle with the salt. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Drain daikon. Stir in the garlic, onion, egg, bread crumbs, pepper, paprika, and chili garlic sauce. Mix well. Form into 8, small round patties.
  3. Pour oil into a large skillet. Heat over medium heat. Fry patties in the hot oil until firm and nicely brown, about 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.


  • Editor's Note
  • We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

This had a very weird taste. I could not quite put my finger on it. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either.

Very good. I found it a bit too salty, so you can reduce the salt and when draining the daikon, press out some extra water. If you find that the patties are not holding, add an extra egg. I used...

Yummy! I skipped direction #1 and instead grated my daikon the night prior [tip from the previous reviewer] and squeeze the liquid out before use. Added 1 tsp of Sriracha because I like the ta...

Instead of using only daikon, I mixed sweet potatoe and daikon radish.

Alright, so I made a big mistake because I used turnips instead of radishes (grated, soaked in salt, etc.), BUT this recipe was so versatile and delicious that it turned out just fine. The only ...

We received three large daikon in our CSA delivery and I had no idea what to do with them before I found this recipe. These are wonderful!

Very tasty and pretty easy to make! I used much less oil - enough to cover the bottom of the pan (maybe 1/4 inch worth) and green onions instead of red. They turned out great. Also, I skipped th...

Like the other reviewers, I found this weird radish thing in my CSA basket and was all like, "Huh?" So Allrecipes to the rescue and I decided to make these radish patties! THEY WERE GREAT. I ...

This was surprisingly good! I had a feeling nobody would eat it - after all, who eats fried radishes? - but I had to use them up. These were DEVOURED and everyone wanted more! They were prett...
