This inspiration came about when I was watching a Korean Variety Show called "Happy Together". There was a winning dish that used the rice paper to wrap leftover and pan-fried it. Just so happen that I still have a small piece of nian gao/ steamed glutinous rice cake in the refrigerator, so I thought rice paper and nian gao would go well together and quickly set out to give it a try. We all loved this chewy variation of eating the nian gao too. Now I have a new way to enjoy the leftover nian gao from Chinese New Year! I bet you all have some nian gao laying around your house too right? Give this a try!! *wink*
Soft and chewy bite with melted nian gao/ tikoy/ steamed glutinous rice cake with a slight crispiness from the skin, simply divine! If you don't like it chewy, you can also try my Crispy Springroll Fried Nian Gao. You can omit other filling and just wrap it with the nian gao alone, crispy and delicious!
