can be eaten deep fried or steamed.
My mom has a third way of eating nian gao
by cooking it in a sweet dessert.
This fuss free method of steaming;
1/2 piece nian gao, sliced
100g shredded coconut, mix with salt to taste
1. Steam nian gao and coconut in different container
2. Remove from heat when the nian gao is soft
3. Use chopstick to take out some nian gao
4. Coat the nian gao with the steamed coconut
5. Serve warm.
