Fried Milk

Fried milk is new star dessert in all Chinese bakery store.  Although considered as not healthy enough, it is loved by the younger generation because it is so satisfying.

This dessert is originated from Cantonese cuisine. But the traditional Chinese version fried milk is not coated with bread crumbs. Adding bread crumbs is a modernized way but more popular in younger generation.

Cook’s Note

  1. The bread crumbs are easily to be burnt. If they are added one by one, the first chunk can be get burnt quickly. So I recommend using a large flat strainer, lay 4-5 pieces one time and soak the strainer in the oil for deep-frying. So each piece is evenly heated.
  2. Do not eat too much once, as deep-frying dishes are not healthy.fried milk|chinasichuanfood.com
