Nian Gao Pancakes

Sunday, February 20, 2011

This is my second post on Nian Gao related food. I had saw the posting of this recipe in Vivian's blog which attracted my to tried it out using the second small sized Nian Gao that Mummy had given to me during Chinese New Year. I am trying to use Nian Gao in making food items that I have not tried before. The outlook of the Nian Gao Pancakes does resemble Chinese Pancakes. The method is similar like making pancakes but we had used Nian Gao as the fillings inside. I am pretty happy with the end results. It was very fulfilling to our tummies too. Burp burp.. :)

I had snapped some step by step picture tutorial in the making of this yummy delicacies.

Slice Nian Gao to desired thickness.

Divide dough into 7 portion. Rolled each portion to a ball shape. Flattened each ball.

Place a slice of Nian Gao on top of the flattened dough.

Wrap the dough around the Nian Gao to form a pancake. Repeat the steps again for the rest.

Ready made Nian Gao pancakes prepared to be pan fry.

Add in small amount of oil in a non stick pan. Pan fry pancakes for 4-5 minutes each side.

Eat the pancakes while it's still warm as Nian Gao is still gooey and chewy.
