Yau Char Kway, a deep fried pastry of Chinese origin. Made of flour, and a spinkle of rice flour to make it crunchy. They come in several variations. Plain, wrapped with glutinous rice, cinnamon-centered or sugared sesame seeds. Butterfly-, round-, oval-shaped and is a typical breakfast choice. Fried in a huge vat of fat. Eaten as is or dipped in thick, black coffee. In Dim Sum parlours, it is sliced thinly, re-fried and sprinkled over porridge.
Damn it, this post is making me very hungry.
