Ox-tongue pastry (Chinese: 牛脷酥; pinyin: niúlìsū; Jyutping: ngau4 lei6 sou1) or horse-ear pastry (Chinese: 马耳; pinyin: mǎěr), also referred to as Chinese doughnut, is a Chinese pastry that is popular in south China in the provinces of Guangdong and Fujian. It is a fried dough food that is elliptical in shape and resembles an ox tongue or a horse ear. The pastry texture is chewy, with a soft interior and a crunchy crust. Ox-tongue pastry is lightly sweetened, and eaten as part of breakfast with soy milk. The pastry is made in a similar way as Youtiao, with sugar typically added to the flour.[1]
