Nian Gao Wantans 年糕雲吞

Fried 12 of these babies yesterday for snacks, brought 3 for little girl when picked her up after school, and she adored it, she ate another 2 again after reaching home ;)

I wrapped the nian gao and a small piece of Kraft cheddar cheddar cheese into the wantan skin, lightly fried it til turning crispy. It was quite difficult to fry it as the cheese melt, flowed out and got burn with the above shape that I wrapped.

After changing the wrapping method to this, it fried nicely as the wantan sealed better.

This is a very addictive snack, as it is crunchy, sweet and salty at the same time, luckily I made 15 of it only ;p

Wah, you are very creative with all these nian gaos, so much easier compared to the flour batter, right?

Hi, HK, we dislike the flour batter type, so have to try hard to think of alternative ways to tempt little girl taking a bite.

Still have 1/4 of nian gao left, hope able to think of something again.
