yu tiao


Homemade Yu Tiao (Yu Char Kway or Chinese dough sticks)

Another Chinese snack that even my ‘si fu’ (teacher) refrained from doing and teaching.  "You need years of experience to make the perfect dough stick", she said.  

A deep fried snack, it usually goes well with a bowl of soya bean curd and is a popular morning breakfast item in Hong Kong.  It is first made popular by the Cantonese people here, but is also much appreciated by all others now and relished throughout the day.
