Cakwe

Youtiao is a long golden-brown deep-fried strip of dough eaten in China and in other East and Southeast Asian cuisines. Conventionally, youtiao are lightly salted and made so they can be torn lengthwise in two. In Indonesia, this fried dough is known as cakwe. It is commonly chopped or thinly sliced then eaten for breakfast with bubur ayam (chicken porridge) or eaten as snacks with local version of chilli vinaigrette.
