Chinese Skewer Snacks, Dunhuang

On the streets of Dunhuang we came across this delicious joy. What we see here is deep fried mushrooms on a wooden skewer brushed with VERY spicy chili paste. Gaviem, our Belgian friend, enjoyed his with caution.

You can try many kinds of skewers from vegetable to tofu, they even fry lettuce. Just point and choose and the vendor will fry them to a tea.

Behold the frying pan and the vicious spice.

On the subject of fried skewer delights there is also the simple potato chip. Peeled and thinly sliced in a spiral it is then pierced with a stick, fried and sprinkled with cumin and chili. It can also be made with any array of root veggies and apples. Consume this with caution as well as it tends to break.
