三大泡 San Da Pao

In Outside Dubai, snacks n bites on February 25, 2016 at 11:04


San Da Pao or 3 big cannons is a traditional local sweet snack from Chengdu that gives your palate a break from all the spiciness sze chuan dishes are famous for.

It’s name comes from the booming sounds that are produced when glutinous rice balls are thrown against a brass plate and bounce off into a wooden bucket of mixed soya power and crushed white sesame power.

It is then finished off with a sweet syrup that is made from local brown sugar which brings with it pleasant sweetness and a strong taste of molasses.

It is a wonderful way to end a meal that is made up of street snacks…
