There are several street vendors in Tainan that sell freshly-fried doughnuts that they advertise as being made with millet flour.

I don’t need a whole lot of convincing to try a doughnut, especially one that’s fresh from the fryer.

At this particular stall, you can either get a pack of six doughnut holes, or regular doughnuts.  The doughnut holes had literally just come out of the fryer as I was about to order, so obviously that’s what I went with.

The doughnuts are dropped into powdered sugar, and then drizzled with condensed milk.

They’re amazing.  The outside is surprisingly crispy, and the interior is soft and fluffy, with an almost mochi-esque level of chewiness.  It’s odd at first, but it very, very quickly grew on me.  I could eat about a million of these.
