Ling Cooks : Fried Sweet Potato Balls with Nian Gao

This year I did not make my own nian gao but I received one from Mamarazzi which is made by herself and another was given by my boss after the Chinese prayers. Previously, I cooked the nian gao by coating them with batter and fried it, so it's kind of boring,

But last weekend my mom came over, so we decided to make something interesting considering I have another pair of extra hands.

Yup, I thought of wrapping the nian gao in the sweet potato ball. Here is our weekend project with my mom and the kids.

Recipe : Sweet Potato Balls with Nian Gao

150-200g of Nian Gao cut into cubes
400-450g Sweet potato
200g glutinous rice flour
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp of corn flour
1/4 tsp of salt
warm water

1. Steam potato until very soft.
2. Mash sweet potato with oil and salt. (if you want to sweeten your dough, you can add sugar which I omitted)
3. Add glutinous rice flour and corn flour.
4. Start kneading by adding sufficient warm water until you get the right consistency to form the dough.
5. Using bite size amount of dough, wrap around the nian gao cube.
6. Roll into a smooth ball and seal it properly so the nian gao does not expose.
7. Using a non stick pot/pan, drop the balls into into the medium heat oil by placing them apart so that they will not stick to each other. Do not use high heat else the balls will brown too quickly before the nian gao is cooked inside.(adjust the flame accordingly) It takes some time to deep fried until golden brown.
8. Drain the excessive oil on paper tower and serve warm.

I used my Philips Pressure Cooker to steam the sweet potato for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile cut the nian gao into cubes.

Rest assure the sweet potato came out very soft.

Mash the sweet potato using fork. Add salt and oil.

Add the glutinous rice flour and corn flour. Mix them together and start kneading by adding sufficient water until you get the right consistency to form a dough.

Roll into a smooth ball by wrapping around the nian gao cube.

Frying the golden balls...hehhe

Big E make a cat shaped dough. She was proud of her creation.haha
