Here is the recipe for the Chinese Pretzels. It was requested by someone. Unfortunately the photo, not mine, is a bad one and I couldn't find any good ones online. These chinese pretzels are usually sold in Chinatown or at selected Chinese Restaurants. Another island favorite. I checked it as medium level because of the frying with hot oil.
