Nian Gao with Coconut 椰丝年糕

I am not a fan of Nian Gao, and if you are not too, you're going to be left with a pile of Nian Gao after Chinese New Year. What to do with them? I decided to prettify it to make it at least abit more appetising to the eyes. So I coat the steamed sticky sweet rice cakes in desiccated coconut for a simple dessert to go with dinner. The result was a yummy dessert which tastes alot like  'Nyonya Kuihs'. The recipe below, as you can see, is incredibly simple.

1 round block of 'Nian Gao', cut in to 2 cm x 2cm pieces
Some desiccated coconut + pinch of salt

1. Steam desiccated coconut for 10 minutes to rehydrate.
2. At the same time, steam Nian Gao pieces for 10 minutes as well.
2. Toss in desiccated coconut. Serve warm.
