Sa Ke Ma
is a traditional snack/biscuit love by many.

It is sweet, crunchy and fragrant.

Lucinda Lau 
shares with us this recipe,
with simple ingredients of flour and eggs,
it is transformed into this wonderful snack!

Sa Ke Ma
(A) 150g flour
       2 eggs
       1/2 tsp baking powder
       1/4 tsp salt

(B) 80g sugar
      80g maltose
      40g water

(C) some toasted sesame seeds (optional)

1. sift flour & baking powder, add salt and mix well
2. beat eggs lightly in a bowl and add to sifted dry ingredients
3. knead together to form a dough, allow to rest for 20min
4. roll dough into a thin rectangle, divide into 1" sections
    and cut into 1/2cm strips, coat with flour if necessary
5. deep fry dough strips until golden, drain & leave aside
6. cook (B) over medium fire until sugar dissolves & thick bubbles formed.
    Continue cooking at LOW heat until-(To test, use chopstick to touch the syrup
    and lift up. If it forms a fine line, it is ready) 
7. Turn off heat, pour fried strips into sugar syrup and toss until well coated
8. add some sesame seeds and transfer to a oiled and lined 6" square pan
    & press while it is hot to compact, using a spoon 
9. leave for an hour before cutting into squares

Must really press and compact in order to get a nice firm cube!
I did not press mine hard enough!
