A giant lump of soft dough drops onto the workspace of 달인꽈배기, a small bakery located in Seoul’s Yeongcheon Market in South Korea. Rhythmic slices cut the dough into equal pieces. Rolling and a quick twirling of the long, thick strands create rows of waiting twists. Floating in oil, the Kkwabaegi (꽈배기) twisted donuts brown and crisp before they’re gathered, covered with a mix of cinnamon and sugar, and packed up.
This kkwabaegi Korean street food video is from ETTV 이티티비.
Kkwabaegi twisted donuts are traditionally an after-school treat. Maangchi has a recipe and an easy-to-follow how-to video.
