Cui4 ma2 hua1 is also a traditional Beijing snack. Although I don’t really enjoy eating fried stuffs, I know many people out there do, therefore, I am introducing now this popular snack to you.

Beijing children love eating cui4 ma2 hua1, this snack has a crispy texture and a dry, sweet taste. There are many varieties of cui4 ma2 hua1 in Beijing, for instance,

- Cui4 ma2 hua1 coated with sesame seeds,

- Cui4 ma2 hua1 glued with icing sugar, etc.

Ingredients used to make cui4 ma2 hua1:

- Wheat flour

- Soda

- Brown sugar

- Oil for the cui4 ma2 hua1

- Vegetable oil for frying

Supermarkets and department stores in Beijing also sell mini fried dough twists beautifully packed what makes a nice present for anyone.

Enjoy your holiday!
