Nian gao sweet potato sandwich
They must have heard my regrets of forgetting to include nian gao in my chinese new year fare and in timely fashion, cured my deprivation with this wonderful tea break. Another friendship solidly sealed!
Thinly sliced nian gao or chinese new year sticky cake
Sweet potato thinly sliced.
1 part rice flour, 2 part plain flour
Use enough water to make a batter with the egg and flour. Set aside.
Prepare nian gao, sweet potato. Sandwich nian gao between the sweet potato slices. Dip in batter.
Deep fry at medium heat until golden brown.
Use a toothpick to test that the sweet potato is thoroughly cooked as well.
Serve hot with a cup of tea.
