WATCH: How to Cook Tikoy (Rice Cake)

'Tis the season... for tikoy!

Tikoy or Nian gao is a rice cake made from glutinous rice that is pounded or ground into a paste, molded into shapes (usually a circle) and then steamed.
 
 
Tikoy can be enjoyed any time of the year but it is especially popularly during the Chinese New Year celebrations as the term "Nian gao" is a homonyn for  a "higher year" to come.
 
 
The most popular (and easiest) way to enjoy tikoy is to dip it in beaten eggs and pan-fry until golden brown. Feel free to take it up a notch by wrapping it in lumpia wrapper, adding fruit, and even cooking it with chocolate!
