年糕 Nian Gao - New Year Rice Cake

年糕 Nian Gao is a food prepared from glutinous rice flour and famous in Chinese cuisine. It is also simply known as "rice cake". While it can be eaten all year round, traditionally it is most popular during the Chinese New Year. Nian Gao also has the exact homonym for "sticky cake" (粘糕); the character 粘 (nián), meaning "sticky".

What makes 年糕 Nian Gao?

Making of nian gao can be traced back to the Northern and Southern dynasties (386-589 AD). The agricultural text Qimin Yaoshu, written during that time, referenced an older recipe book Shi Ci (食次) and the glutinous rice dish, ye (䊦): "Use glutinous rice flour, sieve with silk cloth, add water and honey, use hand to knead the dough, making two-inch squares, cut to four sticks, put date and chestnut meat on and under the sticks, grease around, cover with bamboo leaves, steam thoroughly, set aside two hours, if the leaves are still on, ripped off, set the sticks free." Ye was the earliest variant of nian gao known to have been made.

Serving Suggestion for 年糕 Nian Gao...
  • You can't eat Nian Gao cold; the sugar and rice harden enough to break your precious teeth. First of all, slice your chilled rice cake (nian gao), dip them in beaten egg, then fry them in a skillet for breakfast or a snack!
  • Simply slice and steam. Eat it with freshly grated coconut as you desire - believe me, it tastes heaven!
