1. Grease the pan with a little of oil in order to help remove the cake from it at ease.
2. Dissolve the water chestnut flour with 300 ml
of water & cornflour completely. Drain through a fine sieve. Stir in 2
tsp oil. Set aside.
3. Put the other 300 ml of water, together with
white & brown sugar into a deep pot. Cook until the sugar
dissolves completely. Bring it to boil. Add the water chestnuts. Reduce
the heat to low. Stir in the dissolved water chestnut flour mixture.
Immediately stir to combine well into a thick but smooth batter. Make
sure not to let the batter stick to the bottom.

steam in a wok for about 30minutes, or until the
cake turns translucent.
