This dish is one of the most famous in the Chinese culture for New Year’s celebrations throughout the Asian region. It is famous due to the action necessary as one must toss the ingredients into the air in order to mix them as they say out loud “fung sung soy hei” which sounds as if they are asking for the most luck possible in everything they do in life, be it investing, working or even gambling. The upward motion of tossing the ingredients creates the thought of moving the economy upward towards the sky.
