Youtiao, You Char Kway, Cakoi or Shakoy?

Youtiao is commonly eaten in China and many other parts of the world, especially Asian like East and Southeast Asia. As youtiao evolve around the local culture, but they still preferred as breakfast. Normally eaten paired with porridge or soy milk. In today’s era, they generally comes in two flavors – lightly salted or lightly sweetened, depending on the local culture.

In Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, they are commonly called You Char Kway, Cakoi, Cakwe, Kueh or Kuay. Meanwhile, in the Philipines, it is called Shakoy.

Why “You Char Kway”?

You Char Kway directly translated as “oil-fried-devil”, it was said that this dish is relevant to Song Dynasty of a couple as to act to protest against a general. The initial shape of the dough was two human-shaped dough, where later on changed to two pieces joined in the middle which represent an official and his wife, both joining together to bring down a general during their era. Thus, the dough is fried and eaten to symbolized as if it is done to the traitorous couple.

1 Hour Proofing Youtiao? How?

Usually, Youtiao is made by adding aged dough as the proofing factor, and they are left overnight for about 8 hours for the natural yeast to do their job, creating air pockets that give them the crunchy on the outside while soft in the inside texture.

What we can do is simply used instant yeast to hasten the proofing process and also ensure that the temperature for proofing is warm so that the yeast would do their work quickly, I did so by leaving them nearby the window with sunlight.


Youtiao is popularly known as You Char Kway in Malaysia and Singapore, in other words they are Chinese Fried Churros, Chinese Cruller, Chinese Oil Stick, or Chinese Doughnut. In general, youtiao is eaten during breakfast alongside soy milk and congee. However, in Malaysia and Singapore culture, we eat them with kopi (coffee) and bak kut teh. The traditional method of making them was to proof them for 8 hours overnight, whereas I am always trying to find an alternative method to quicken any food that is produced while trying to maintain similar results. After some understanding of how youtiao is made, I’ve made some theory myself and give it a try. Surprisingly they work! Here I am sharing it with you all how I make it happen with just 1 hour proofing!

  1. The traditional method of youtiao making requires at least 8 hours of proofing where no yeast is added, so natural fermentation took place to create the air pockets. To quicken this, I’ve added Instant Yeast to shorten the proofing time to 1 hour.
  2. Even after it is proofed, traditionally it is rolled into a rectangular shape and let it proof again so that the air pocket will rise again. In order to skip this step, we have to gently roll it so that we do not compress the air pocket during the rolling process.
  3. Season them in any way you want them, you can make them sweeter or add dry spices to spice up the game!
  4. 还可以把它们做成其他形状!

    Recipe works well if you need to whip up a batch of you tiaos urgently like I did today when we suddenly decided to make congee using our left over Christmas turkey. It’s a bit more doughy than usual, but it rises nicely and puffs up when fried.
