Horseshoe Fried Doughnuts (Ma Kiok) Recipe
Do you remember during the beginning of MCO back in March when we all first started staying home with nothing much to do? We began to experiment in the kitchen; looking for some easy viral recipes to make. Those were the days when you can see almost everyone posting on social media their Dalgona Coffee or You Tiao (Yau Char Kwai) or even Roti Canai.
Well where I am staying at, we are now experiencing CMCO. That means schools are close and the kids are back with online studies. We are also not allowed to cross borders and just like MCO, we are spending a whole lot of time at home. In fact, we are spending all of our time at home.
With so much time in hand, I’m not going to make You Tiao because that fler had taken centre stage already earlier this year. This time I’m going to make something I like better than Yau Char Kwai. I’m making Ma Kiok.
If you like Chinese Street Snacks, you’ll know of these 4 brothers – Yau Char Kwai, Ma Kiok, Ham Chim Peng and Kap Zhong. Among these four, my least favourite is actually Yau Char Kwai. I only eat Yau Char Kwai with porridge or Bak Kut Teh. For snacks, I love Ma Kiok and Ham Chim Peng. I also like Kap Zhong though that can be really heavy and filling to the tummy.
It’s actually very easy to make all of the above. It’s quite time consuming though as it has a lot of proofing and waiting time but it’s also good as we can do other stuffs in between.
