Grilled rushan

Rushan (; pinyin: rǔshān, literally "milk fan") is a cow's milk cheese of Yunnan, China. It is traditionally made by the Bai people, who call it nvxseiz (or Yenx seinp, in another dialect of Bai), the etymology of which is unclear.[1]

It is flat and has a leathery texture. It may be served fried or grilled and rolled up on a stick.photo The Mandarin name means "milk fan" as it is said to resemble a folding fan.

When served grilled (often as a street food), it is usually spread with various sweet condiments and rolled around a stick, resembling a popsicle. Some of the popular toppings include sweetened condensed milk, rose petal infused honey, chocolate syrup, and fruit preserves.

If rushan cheese is served deep fried, the cheese changes its texture and becomes somewhat flaky.
