Steamed Nian Gao (年糕) Kueh Pin It
I like to eat Nian Gao especially sandwich in between sweet potato and yam. But I don't feel like making Nian Gao fritter. So the other way of enjoying is to steam and then coat with desiccated coconut! Instead of having only Nian Gao why not invite its' best buddy, sweet potato and yam as well!
Steamed Nian Gao (年糕) Kueh Like fritter I used Nian Gao as filling, steam together with sweet potato and yam. Here come the steamed Nian Gao Kueh :D The best to enjoy is serving it as soon as come out from steamer. Can you see the Nian Gao oozing out? Let see how I make it.
