Ingredients

Egg Mixture:

  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Create Egg Mixture: Mix 2 eggs and ¼ tsp salt together in a small bowl.
  • Pan Fry Nian Gao: Heat pan over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp of coconut oil or peanut oil onto the pan. Dip nian gao slices into the egg mixture. Pan-fry each side for 1 - 2 minutes until golden brown.
    Optional: Double dip the nian gao slices into the Egg Mixture and pan-fry each side for another minute for more "eggy" taste.
  • Serve Pan-Fried Nian Gao: Absorb the oil on the Pan Fried Nian Gao with a paper towel to keep the outer layer nice & crisp. Enjoy the hot fragrant sweet sticky rice cake - nian gao with a cup of tea.
