How to make Tikoy
Making Tikoy is easier than you think! You can make them at home with this quick and simple tutorial using 3 pantry staple ingredients only.
- 4 cups glutinous rice flour
- 1 ½ cups sugar
- 2 cups warm water
- 1 ½ tsp vanilla (optional)
- 2 medium eggs beaten
In a bowl, mix glutinous rice and sugar. Pour in warm water and mix until the batter becomes smooth.
Grease a rectangle or round pan (glass, ceramic, or aluminum) with oil and fill it with the batter.
Steam over medium heat for around 30-40 minutes or until inserted toothpick on the middle of the pan does not comes out easily and feels sticky instead of liquidy. Let it cool down completely.
Refrigerate overnight to let it set and harden a bit. Try to pull the rice cake out from one side and it should completely come out from the pan. If it doesn't, run a knife at the edges of the pan and dislodge the Tikoy carefully.
Cut into thin slices about quarter of an inch thick.
Dip the slices in the beaten eggs and fry in hot oil over low heat until both sides turn golden brown and crispy!
Transfer fried tikoy on a plate lined with paper towels to remove excess oil. Then transfer to a serving tray or dish.
