Kung Hei Fat Choy! My Chinoy friends gave me tikoy as gifts for the Chinese New Year. Nian Gao or tikoy in the Philippines is glutinous rice cake. It is eaten at the start of the lunar year for prosperity. Hereโ€™s how to cook tikoy:
1. Slice tikoy into little squares or strips.
2. Dip and coat into a scrambled egg.
3. Pan fry with a little cooking oil. Enjoy!
