These crispy Fried Nian Gao fritters are sandwiched with yam, sweet potato and of course, nian gao. Sesame seeds are also added in for extra crunch and texture. A classic favourite for Chinese New Year.
Choose a good quality nian gao, the powdery type yam and Indonesian sweet potato variety.If the sticky rice cake is soft and sticky, refrigerate it overnight before cutting into pieces as it's easier to cut thin slices with a firm nian gao.Slice and trim yam, sweet potato and sticky rice cake slices so that they are about the same size. Ideal size is about 1/2 cm for each slice.A little ground turmeric powder added gives the batter a nice golden colour and added fragrance.The batter is best prepared just before frying the fritters.
