Hi, how's your Chinese New Year celebrations going on? Today is the 3rd day, and we already had lots and lots of delicious food, gatherings and all happy moments back from hometown.
Back to our home sweet home, after settling down everything I finally have some time to read all the other bloggers posts and all my emails. And of course a short post here to wish everyone a happy holiday and good celebrations...:)
Nian Gao (Sweet Glutinous Cake)...is a traditional MUST-HAVE cake / kueh during Chinese New Year. Oh and this is my whole family's favourite which we usually have it for breakfast on the 2nd day. Somehow this was done and eaten before Chinese New Year starts...haha! Yeah ...we can't wait to taste it!!
The Nian Gao was bought by my mother-in-law from someone whom she knows very well. And we have been buying from her for many many years. After cutting into slices, I sandwiched it with some yam (taro) and sweet potatoes before frying...yummy!!
Here's the recipe for the batter for frying:
80g rice flour
1 tsp tapioca flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
~ Sliced the nian gao, yam (taro) and sweet potatoes.
~ Combined batter, rest for 30 minutes. Just prior to deep-frying process., add in 1 tbsp of oil into the batter. Mix well.
~ Sandwich nian gao, yam and sweet potato together, coat with ready batter. Pan fry in hot oil till golden at medium heat for about 5-10 minutes. Remove, drained and serve.
