    Starman5's Note:

    I am sure there is a better Chinese name for this than the title of this recipe for this dish, but I have been unable to find it on the internet. Most recipes I have found for You Tiao use alum, or ammonia, this one does not. When I was in Beijing in 1993, these flat, square, crispy crackers were what most street venders used in their Jian BIngs.
