[singlepic id=86 float=center w=380]
That’s what the English label says — Korean Rice Cracker. It’s a hangwa (한과, traditional Korean snack) called yoogwa (유과). To make it, Koreans use rice flour to form a dough into these stubby fingerlings, which are then deep fried in oil. Airy and crunchy inside.
The hangeul label identifies the product as 오색유과 (osaek yugwa). O-saek means five colors. The flavors or variants listed on the package are 백년초 (cactus), 쑥 (mugwort), 콩 (bean), 유자 (yuja, a citrus fruit) and 연유과 (lotus).
Surasang (수라상) is the brand. Net Weight: 170 grams (6 ounces). Available at HK Supermarket on Western Avenue.
