From Kunming's deep fried sweet ham rolls with condensed milk to the Philippines' Tocino del cielo, these 10 desserts are sure to please and widen the waistline
By La Carmina
Deep fried sweet ham rolls with condensed milk.This dessert from an experimental Chinese restaurant is a triple-threat: slices of fatty ham, rolled in sugary dough and deep fried, then soaked in condensed milk. I bet you can feel your cholesterol rise with every bite.
Shanghai, China: Deep fried red bean pancake
A fried red bean pancake is always an indulgence, but this version could pass for an oilcloth. Sifu writes: “It was like eating raw dough brushed with a thin layer of equally oily red bean paste (that’s how greasy it was -- almost as if it were given a ladle of oil to finish).”
Indian candy-makers deep-fry a coil of fermented batter and then soak it in syrup until it gleams. Delicious and disgusting.
India: Gulab jamun
Globs of fried double-cream dough, floating in a vat of flavored syrup … how many do you think you could swallow before keeling over?
Phillippines: Tocino del cielo
The literal translation of tocino del cielo is “heavenly bacon” or “lard from heaven” -- possibly because it could be your last meal. The flan-like dessert made from a kilo of sugar and 25 egg yolks.
A toxic triflan cake from a Filipino grocery store. Made with cassava, coconut milk and far too much yellow food coloring.
Thailand: Deep fried bananas
Bananas are a healthy snack, unless they’re soaked in batter and deep fried. Unfortunately, there are vendors all over Thailand and the smell is hard to resist.
Faluda is a popular summer drink in the Indian subcontinent. It’s a slush of ice cream, tutti frutti, basil seeds and whatever sugary additives are on hand. You don’t want to know how many calories are in each sip.
China: Deep fried glazed buns with condensed milkThese shiny lumps of Plasticine were once plain Chinese buns. Deep frying and glazing has brought them to this artery-clogging state. Now pass the condensed milk dipping sauce.
