Fried bread sticks / You Tiau / Yau Char Kwai

Been wanting to take the challenge to try to make Yau Char Kwai, but the last time with different recipe it turned out to be like the Beignet..LOL.. this time is quite successful considering i used some substitute ingredients. The original recipe requires Alum (i replaced it with cream of tartar) and Ammonia Powder (i replaced it with bicarbonate soda and baking powder) which i don't have intention to 'invest' on these ingredients as i don't think i will use it often. I made a little twist and it turns out surprisingly quite good *grins*.

The process is same as making bread, not that difficult just need a little patience to wait for the dough to prove.

Here you go my first ever successful

250 ml water
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
