Yoo Tiao has a rich tradition in Chinese culture. According to legend, there was a traitor named Qin Hui who orchestrated a plot to frame a celebrated and patriotic general named Yue Fei in the Song Dynasty. The story goes on to say that grieving and angry people made two human-shaped pieces of dough - representing Qin Hui and his wife, and fried it in boiling oil, calling it “Fried Hui”. Later this representation evolved into two pieces of dough joined along in the middle, which is how Yoo Tiao looks like today.
