A delicious snack

Does anyone know or came cross this snack sold in china town at evening? It’s a pan fried made out of rice flour and dikon. Of course dipped with hot sauce; it is a dirty delicious snack, named “oh Kay Kyi”, it does sounded like calling someone’s name.

I didn’t find it last time...

Thanks!

Chris,

Those are wonderful Burmese snacks from many different regions. But, the “oh kay kyi “ seemed to me that modified recipes from Chinese version of diakon cake and sold only in a few places and in evening only by street vendors if I may recall. A very unique dirty delicious snack...

Thanks to everyone, it would be wonderful if you can link the pictures.

Yup, it’s not Myanmar snacks as I mentioned as above; however, one thing troubles me is that you said “Ei Kway Kyaw”. It doesn’t sound right. Are you mistaken with “Tee Kwoy”? Correct me if I am wrong.

Oh Kay Kyi and Ei Kway Kyaw is different.

Oh kay kyi had white and yellow version which is depends on the food.

It is similar to Carrot cake but it is fried and need the dipping sauce.

You can find at China town or other area like Hle Dan at night.
