Steamed Nian Gao with Freshly Grated Coconut

Every Chinese New Year, there will surely be Nian Gao in mum's place. It is usually decorated with red paper cuttings on the alter mantelpiece.

It is a tradition that during Chinese New Year, family members gather around the steamed nian gao. With a chopstick each, stick it into the nian gao. Twirl the chopstick to pick up some of the sticky dough and coat it with coconut.

A family that sticks together stays together!

My own-made nian gao

I like eating the sticky sweet nian gao with grated coconut. I love the glue-y feeling. It makes me feel all glue-y inside! :)
