Sesame Ribbon Crisp

When i was making the Crispy Crackers for Yee Sang, i decided to make this Sesame Ribbon Crisp as it is the same recipe only it is formed into ribbons.  These ribbons do not need any introduction, one bit into one and before you can chew on it, your hand will be reaching out for another.  That's how good they are.


2 cups plain flour
2 eggs
2 pieces of lam yee
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp 5 spice powder
1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
enough water to make into a dough
2 - 3tbsp black sesame seeds
Vegetable oil for deep frying


Combined all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix into a smooth dough. Cover with a piece of wet towel and rest for 30 minutes.

To fold dough into ribbon shape:

Roll out the dough thinly as thinly as possible (about 1/8”).   Cut into 2” x 1” strip/rectangle Using 2 strips/ rectangles, place one on top of each other and use the tip of the knife ,cut and make a slit in the middle of the rectangle lengthwise. For each pair of strips/rectangles, Insert or push the top end of the strips/rectangle into the slit twice to form a twisted ribbon.The reason 2 strips/retangles are used to make a piece of ribbon cookie is because the ribbon will bloom after frying..

Heat up some vegetable oil for deep frying. Fry the dough until goldebrown. Remove and drain the oil.
