A fusion snack made by the American Chinese inspired by an authentic Burmese dish . It is some thing like a wanton crispy exterior with a cream cheese and crab filling moist inside. I really wanted to try this recipe looking at the flower shape it had but was so confused as to how it was made. I went through so many YouTube videos and finally got the hang of it. While making them, it was more easier than it seemed to be. An apt appetizer to impress guests and loved ones at home . It can be made ahead and refrigerated. Deep fry just before serving. crisp, moist and gooey all in one bite . Serve it with many dips of choice which makes it more interesting. These short eats are a cheats way to melt others. Food is the only source where you get to do so through their stomach with out touching them.
