Chinese New Year celebration is just a month away and clearing the fridge is the No.1 task for me. I found last year glutinous rice cake/sticky rice cake - 'Nian Gao ' in a container. To make way for the new batch of glutinous rice cake, I have to use this up . Imagine this cake has been in the fridge for a year now :p I decided to make fried 'Nian Gao ' for our afternoon tea. This goes well with a cup of hot black coffee. The batter for this sticky cake is just 1/2 cup of plain flour, 1 egg , enough water to make a semi thick and smooth batter and some oil for deep frying. Dip slices of sticky cake/nian gao into batter and deep fried till golden brown. Wild Boar wants it a bit chewy instead of the soft and ooey and gooey texture after the deep frying. For me, I preferred the 'nian gao ' to be soft , ooey and gooey ! So I made both..the chewy one for him and soft ooey gooey ones for Her :)))
One item off the fridge drawer :p
Enjoy and have a nice day !
