I know this post is way too late for publishing but will post it anyway. We don’t celebrate Chinese New Year like most people (non-Chinese) do. But we see to it to buy Tikoy or CNY cake to feast on even if the occasion is over. We bought it for only 100 pesos at Fairview Center Mall.
Cooking Tikoy is easy. Sliced the cake thinly and dip in egg before frying. Fry for a few minutes until golden brown. Best served with coffee or you favorite beverage.
Nian gao, sometimes translated as year cake or Chinese New Year’s cake, is a food prepared from glutinous rice flour and consumed in Chinese cuisine. While it can be eaten all year round, traditionally it is most popular during Chinese New Year. Wikipedia
