Nian gao (Chinese New Year cake) or ti kuih (sweet cake) is popularly served on Chinese New Year as it symbolised success and togetherness. Eat this sweet cake snack with tea as it is sweet and sticky.
This is how I fry my nian gao. I made some on the 6th day of CNY for breakfast for everyone.
300g nian gao, sliced in uniform
5 tbsp plain flour, sifted
2 eggs, beaten
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1. Prepare the nian gao.
2. In a bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, egg, and salt till consistent and smooth.
3. Dip nian gao in the batter one by one and into a heated pan with oil.
4. In low fire, fry each side till slightly golden brown.
5. Bite into nian gao while it is warm.
