F.A.Q.


home > recipes > dessert > nian gao
This is a sweet, sticky rice cake often eaten at the Chinese New Year. 2 1/2 cups brown sugar 2 1/2 cups hot water 6 cups GLUTINOUS rice flour Add sugar to water, stir and let cool to room temp. Add the rice flour a little at a time. Here comes the hard part. Pour the batter into metal/glass/ceramic bowls or pans lined with plastic wrap for easy removal. Steam them in a rice cooker or in a bamboo steamer. Time varies depending on how much batter is being steamed each time. Since I have a small rice cooker/steamer, it took about 6 hours total to steam the whole batch a little at a time. After it's done, let cool and cut into smaller pieces. You can also add cooked small red beans to the mixture.
