    bayou-mimi's Note:

    I know, it sounds weird... but this is a sweet dessert with a delicate flavor of nutmeg, it's crispy on the outside, smooth and custardy on the inside. It was love at first bite for me..

      I searched out this recipe after having tasted it at a Chinese wedding in the town from which this recipe originated. Light, crispy but not greasy, not too sweet, and delicious.

      Yum. Here in China, it had no nutmeg flavor. Instead there was a very mild coconut hint to it. Maybe the used coconut cream for some of the milk??? Anyway it was good enough that I came searching for the recipe. I expect here they use rice flour instead of breadcrumbs because there was no crumb texture to it.

      I can't wait to try this version and to muck around to see if I can make the Shunde version as well.

      Custard easy to make and set really well for me, but the frying was not worth the effort. Nice flavour, but I would be just as happy to eat the custard without the crisp outside.

      These are definitely worth a try if your looking for something different. The prep time is minimal - most of it is spent in the fridge. The powdered sugar is a must! Thanks for sharing!
