When buying the yau char key choose ones that are not so brown as it’s going to be cooked again.
Yau Char Kuey
Squish the minced pork and fish paste in a bowl and mix well with the minced garlic into a smooth texture.
Cut the yau char key into 1.5inch long pieces and stuff with the mixture.
Heat the oil in a hot wok until the surface shimmers slightly. Add the pieces in batches and deep fry until lightly browned. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well on kitchen paper.
