As the Spring Festival approaches, Dongguan families are all buying special festival goods, including traditional snack foods. Here's a list of local Dongguanese favourite snacks for the Chinese Lunar New Year. Let's take a look.
Chao Mi Bing (Fried Rice Biscuit)
Chao Mi Bing is imaginatively named after the key ingredient of fried rice flour, and is a tasty memorable treat. To make the snack, sautéed rice is ground to a powder, with sugar and water added as required. The paste is compacted and mixed with crushed peanuts. As Chao Mi Bing generally has a set shape, a mould is used to cut pieces ready for cooking in an open charcoal fire.
