When we think of youtiao, we think of going to the hawker centres early on a Sunday morning and eating breakfast with our families. This recipe brings back bites of nostalgia!
Whether you like your youtiao with porridge, youtiao with tau huay or you tiao with coffee, there’s no denying this extra airy and fluffy snack is a Singaporean’s all time favourite.
