 Ingredients List

  • 2 1/2 c Brown Sugar
  • 2 1/2 c Hot Water
  • 6 c Glutinous Rice; flour


Well since it is almost Chinese New Year's (and Vietnamese New Year's) Day,
I'll give a recipe for Nian Gao, a sweet sticky rice cake with a texture
slightly denser than Knox Blox.

Add sugar to water, stir and let cool to room temp. Add the rice flour a
little at a time. Here comes the hard part. Pour the batter into
metal/glass/ceramic bowls or pans lined with plastic wrap for easy removal.
Steam them in a rice cooker or in a bamboo steamer. Time varies depending
on how much batter is being steamed each time. Since I have a small rice
cooker/steamer, it took about 6 hours total to steam the whole batch a
little at a time.

After it's done, let cool and cut into smaller pieces. You can also add
cooked small red beans to the mixture.
