    • How to cook it eh?

      I cut it into slices. Dipped it in beaten eggs and pan fry it. But the eggs do not coat the nian gao. Sad

      What did I not do? Neutral

      Anyone has tips on a fully egg-coated pan fried nian gao?

      Or is there any other way to cook it?

      Thanks. Wink

    • slice them, steam them, eat with bread

      wrap them with popiah(skin), fry them

      cut into small pieces eat with ice cream

      bake with cakes / cookies

      eat with deserts like ice jelly, ice kacang

      fry with eggs

      Yeah, looks like I will be trying this one out first since I'm not good with nian gao and my previous attempts have ALL failed. Sad

    • gotta flash-fry with some batter..

      as in.. oil must be almost unreasonably hot.. the batter is fried and the inside is softened and not melted into a gooey mess which leaks everywhere...

      the nian gao must be cool and hard before frying..

    • yah.. pisang goreng batter, the type which is not like the malay type of batter but the type where you get with the chinese version... light and flaky instead of hard and chunky..

      that's good coz it cooks quickly and you don't need to fry it too long..

      be careful with how long you put it in coz it burns easily..

    • Bear's version sounds very gao nan tu leh. I'm not that pro leh.

      Got Chinese and Malay batter one meh?

      Today, I'm going to use half tray of the nian gao to try the cornflour in egg. Then, if successful, I will use the other half with the batter, say tomorrow or next Saturday.

      Thanks all. Really appreciate it. Wink
