About once a week, I sit down to a yew char kway (you tiao in Mandarin) blowout, with tau huay or sweet bean curd and gallons of green tea or black coffee to try and wash the grease and guilt away. Out,damned fat deposits! Out I say! *sigh*
These fried dough strips were created to symbolise the twin betrayals of a Chinese infidel, court official Qin Hui and his wife, against General Yue Fei, during the Song Dynasty, resulting in the execution of the innocent general.
