Tikoy is a sticky steamed rice cake which is normally eaten in the Philippines when Chinese New Year is celebrated. This Chinese tradition was adopted by Filipinos for many years. It is believed that Tikoy is a sign of good luck. It is also called year cake or Chinese New Year's cake prepared traditionally using glutinous rice.
For this recipe, I just made a little twist from a regular TIKOY that is normally cooked and fried in beaten egg. Ube flavor is added, sliced in strips, added a slice of cheese and wrapped in spring roll wrapper. If you remember, cheese sticks became popular but this time we are adding tikoy with ube flavor.
Tikoy is already sweet so we are not adding brown sugar like how Turon is prepared. If you are not a fan of cheese, you can omit it. Try this recipe and let me know how it is by writing a comment below.
