Eating Youtiao in morning is quite normal in many Chinese cities. From appearance it looks like long sticks, thus it has a lot of different English names such as Fried BreadStick, Chinese Oil Stick, Chinese doughnut stick, Chinese Cruller. However, Youtiao actually in China is not a Chinese-style Baguette or a Chinese donut. They are quite different.

在中国很多城市,油条都是常见的早餐种类之一。从外观上看起来与法棍相似,也有很多不同的英文名称,比如油炸的面包棒,中国的甜甜圈等。但事实上,中国油条与甜甜圈、法棍、面包棍有很大的不同。

Almost all Chinese Youtiaos are long-shaped.

几乎所有中国油条的形状都是长条状。

Roll out and flatten two doughs into long pieces,  superimpose them together. Use one of the chopsticks to press the middle part of Dough. Stretch the head and end to make them a little bit longer, or twist two sticks together and then get fried.

将2条长条状面团擀平,叠加,用筷子按压下中部,油炸前,微微拉长两头即可。或者将两条长条状面团如麻花状扭在一起油炸。

 

Did you know why real Chinese Youtiao was fried by two pieces of dough sticks together? It is proved by experiment that, only when two dough pieces are superimposed and fried together, Youtiao could become expanded enough and give a combination taste of crispy outside and soft inside. Under the same oil temperature and other conditions, one stick would be fried much faster than two pieces, and then only a single crispy taste could be left.

真正的中国油条,为什么是两根一起炸的?因实验证明,只有两根叠加炸成的油条,才能迅速膨胀起来,形成外酥内韧的口感。若是单根油条油炸,由于受热更快更容易酥脆定型,反而膨胀度和口感有限。

Almost 80% of Chinese people thought Youtiao and soy milk together as the best breakfast choice.
