Mix ingredient into a dough. Water can be reduced depending on the consistency of the dough since flour comes in different quality. Leave dough for 20 - 30 mins in a container covered with moist cloth. Heat up enough oil in a wok for deep frying. Cut the dough into strips of 1" x 5". Join 2 strips together, one on top of the other and press the two strips together lengthwise using a oiled chopstick. Stretch the dough and fry in the hot oil until golden brown. Repeat the process with the rest of the dough strips.
