Chinese Bread stick Twists

Chinese Breadstick Twists: A crispy deep fried flour sticks slightly dusted in sugar makes them perfect tea time munchies. I came to know about this dish while going through this link. The twists look like something my kids would enjoy so I went ahead and tried the recipe.

The twist also known as Dza Ma Hwa came out perfect as fried goodies can never go wrong and as expected my girls love munching them ever now and then. I made them yesterday and they are gone already. Yesterday was my non-stop cooking mode and I cooked almost nine dishes but to my bad luck, none was for the blog as I already have them live . When Hubby came home in the evening he is surprised that and happy that very often but I do cook a variety of dishes for them and not for “The Blog”.
