Anyway, Granny got some snacks over the weekend. Was munching on them while preparing this post.
This is an excellent pastry. The filling is a sweet green-bean paste. Yep, the famous green beans that you-must-eat-else-you’ll-kill-by-midnight. This one was brilliant : paste was not too sweet and the pastry was not too salty. Note that the pastry crumbles easily so need to eat it with a plate.
This version does not have any designs on them. Love letters is very sweet and crunchy. Found in abundance during festivals but you can still find it at the market or small grocery stalls. It is made by pouring some batter onto a pair of metal plates welded onto a pair of tongs. The metal plates are pressed tightly together and then heated over a small fire. Once the batter is cook, the round layer is quickly rolled up to the shape above.
