Last Friday Mamarazzi asked you to guess what's in the pot right? So far, only Nancy and Wenn got it correctly...as of when Mamarazzi drafting this la...(Saturday 9.50am)
Still no idea? What if I show you this? Banana Leaves and Tiffin...
Yup! It's Nian Gao/Kuih Bakul/Ti Kwe/Chinese New Year Sticky Rice Cake. Ehem....any more glamour name for this?
Not bad la since being first timer making these. Looks OK from the top.
Feedback from friends, have to put at least 3-4 layers of banana leaves so that there won't be leakage.
She made these nian gao after spotting Sonia's perfect Nian Gao. Seems easy to make wor. But now she knows it's the layering of the "basket" so that it doesn't leak takes a lot of "kungfu"
No worries....Mamarazzi said she will try making it again....Hopefully this round will have good result. Too bad she doesn't have empty condense milk containers or those can fruit containers as those would makes great mould for the Nian Gao instead of Tiffin.
For complete recipe, please head over to Sonia post :-
Though Mamarazzi's Nian Gao shape "kantoi" but the taste is there thanks to Sonia's recipe. By the way, she
lazy to wait 5 hours used pressure cooker to cook the Nian Gao coz she always big head prawns have difficulties in monitoring the water level in the wok if she was to steam it in a wok. Have to keep topping up the water pulak.
Okay okay here is the update. Made two more batches on Sunday. Yay! No leak!!
And also tried using pressure cooker steaming 2hours and 5 hours. Hey! Really have difference leh. Those steamed 5 hours are more fragrant than those 2 hours.
