Traditional fried dough meal from Hungary. Also vegan!

Course: Appetizer, Main Course
Cuisine: Hungarian
  • 200 g cooked potato
  • 300 g flour bread flour even better
  • 4 g dry yeast
  • 100 ml vegetable oil for the dough
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 500 ml vegetable oil for frying
  1. Cook the potatoes and mash them. Alternatively you can use a food processor for a smoother texture. Add it to the bowl followed by the flour, the yeast and the salt. Knead the dough and set it aside for an hour.

  2. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough until it's about an inch thick. Use a round shape, larger cookie cutter or a simple drinking glass or a mug to cut the dough.

  3. You need lots of oil for frying, as you want to cover the dough completely with boiling oil. So bring the oil to boil in a frying pan and fry them, you can add 2-4 at the time, depending on the size of the frying pan. It takes around 2-3 minutes each side.

  4. Serve it immediately with your favourite topping.
