芋泥地瓜年糕球 Sweet Potato Yam Nian Gao Balls


Nian Gao, also known as Chinese New Year's cake or New Year Sticky Cake, is prepared from glutinous rice and widely sold prior to the celebration of the Chinese Lunar New Year festival. Today, I am sharing this recipe with ready made Nian Gao which I overlooked using as it was a gift we received from someone during that time. 


我和丈夫特别爱吃炸年糕,恰好上个星期在家找到一个被遗忘了的年糕。幸好还没变质所以便在Jane's Corner 里找到这个非常易做的食谱。

If you are keen to try out this recipe but have no access to it, you could try making your own from Nasi Lemak Lover's recipe. Alternatively, you could also use their forms of preferred fillings easily available in your area. With or without, I still think the deep fried sweet potatoes and yam itself is good enough for my consumption. 

如果您有兴趣尝试制作这个食谱而又买不到年糕的话,你可从Nasi Lemak Lover 的博客里找到食谱自己尝试做。此外,你也可以加如其他喜好的内馅或者不加而存脆以芋头地瓜泥为主,对我来说都是很可口。

Sweet Potato Yam Nian Gao Balls
Recipe adapted from Jane's Corner

Ingredients 材料
250g Yam 芋泥, boiled and mashed
300g Sweet Potatoes 地瓜泥, boiled and mashed
125g Plain Flour 普通面粉
1-1/2 Tbsp Rice Flour 粘米粉
2 Tbsp Sugar 糖
1 Tsp Salt 盐
1/2 Tsp Eno 以囉果子盐 (Optional)

(Filling) 内馅
350g Nian Gao 年糕切丁, Cut into small cubes
or
Red Bean Paste 红豆沙 (store bought 现成包装的)


Directions

Combine boiled yam and sweet potatoes and mashed until evenly combined.
把煮软的芋头(山药)和地瓜一起加入大碗内均匀混合捣碎成泥。


Add in flour, rice flour, sugar, salt and eno (if using) and knead to form a smooth dough.
再加入粘米粉,糖,盐和以囉果子盐(勿必用),揉搓成一个滑面团。

Divide dough into 14g balls. Flatten the dough and place in the nian gao filling and shaped into a ball. Repeat the process until it is all used up.
将面团分割成14克小面团。把面团压扁成圆形,在面皮中间放入年糕内馅,面皮周围收口捏成为一个圆形。重复这个过程,直到全部面团用完为至。


In a deep frying pan or wok, heat up sufficient oil and deep fry the nian gao balls in medium heat oil until golden brown.
把足够的食油倒入油炸锅或炒锅里,等到食油沸热后便把年糕面团以中火油炸至金黄色即可。
