Chinese Tikoy with Egg Recipe

To celebrate Chinese New Year, it is important to have Chinese Tikoy (Chinese Rice Cake) at the table.  Why?  The Chinese Tikoy is round so it symbolizing money and prosperity.  It is also sticky so it can bring togetherness within the family.  Aside from that the stickiness can also attract money.

So how do you cook you Chinese Tikoy?  Whether its the white, brown or flavored Chinese Tikoy, there are several ways of cooking it.  I've tried different flavors with this recipe such as the Ube, Langka, Pandan and Corn.  But, I really only like eating the brown Tikoy.

Let me share with you one of the ways I cook our Chinese Tikoy at home.  Since Chinese New Year last for weeks, we cook with this recipes over and over. =)  Of course, we don't eat one whole Chinese Tikoy in one seating, we refrigerate the rest.  But, if you forget to refrigerate and there are mold sprouting out.  Don't worry.  They say the Chinese Tikoy taste better when it is already infected with molds.  Just wipe of the molds with oil and it is good to go.  =)
