Tikoy for the Chinese new year

The Chinese new year is being celebrated in some parts of our country although last year it was declared a holiday by the government. What’s amusing in the Chinese new year aside from the dragon dance is the snack food that they give away to friends. We usually receive several boxes of Tikoy from our Chinese friends for the occasion.

Tikoy is s sticky food that is usually fried and eaten with sugar. As seen in the picture, it is originally white although there are other colors now like violet and green to indicate the flavoring. The tikoy is sliced in strips and dipped into beaten egg to lessen the stickiness. The principle behind the tikoy is its stickiness that will make the family and friends stick together until the end. Nice one.
