Water ciba, a specialty from Guilin, is made of glutinous rice and is a popular food among local people in winter. It’s usually soaked in water, which is changed regularly, so the cake can last for over a month.
There are multiple ways to cook this delicacy; you can bake it, fry it or boil it; you can also eat it with sugar or salt. This white and crystalline snack tastes fine and soft. It is probably most delicioys when wrapped with some sugar or soybean powder.
