Nian gao

What are they ways to eat nian gao? We always pan fry, with or without dipping in egg. We've been given one, and we don't really like nian gao.

My mother in law will place a piece of nian gao in between a piece of yam and a piece of sweet potatoe, then coat it with her flour mixture and then deep fry. Very very nice but I do not know how to do it. This year, I hope I can learn from her.

Nian gao has loads of sugar if I'm not wrong.. Try not to eat too much.. Very fattening.. Once a year, 1-2 thin pieces should be ok..

I love Nian gao but I try to control myself. We bought the smallest one to be shared between 4 ppl :wink:

I don't deep fry anything! Noted about sugar content - since we don't even like to eat it, I think we should reserve the calories for something else. Looks like I will need to find people to give it to. It's quite a big one as well - about 7" diameter! I'm having some friends over today - must ask them to each bring a portion home.

Cut it into bite size pieces, steam it and coat it with grated coconut. Like kueh kosui.
