The Cantonese name Yau Char Kwai also known as Chinese crullers, literally means "oil-fried devil" is a long, golden brown, deep-fried dough. According to folklore, the creation of Yau Char Kwai is an act of protest against Song Dynasty, Chancellor Qin Hui, who is said to have orchestrated the plot to frame the general Yue Fei, an icon of patriotism in Chinese culture. It is said that the food, represents Qin Hui and his wife, both having a hand in collaborating with the enemy to bring about the great general's demise. Thus the Yau Char Kwai is deep fried and eaten as if done to the traitorous couple. In keeping with the legend, Yau Char Kwai are often made as two foot-long rolls of dough joined along the middle, with one roll representing the husband and the other the wife.
