Langoš Recipe (makes about 1 dozen)
– 500 g – all purpose flour
– 2 tea spoons of instant yeast
– 4 dcl of milk
– 1 spoon of butter
– 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
– 1 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
– sunflower oil for frying
In a bowl combine the flour with salt and instant yeast. Afterwards add the butter & milk and stir thoroughly.
Work the dough until it’s smooth and no longer sticks to the bowl, then let it rise for 30-40 minutes (it should double in size).
Tip out the dough onto a floured surface, stretch it out into a square and cut out about 3.5 – 4 inch round shapes with a big glass. Stretch out each piece with your fingers into a round shape with the centre being thinner than the edges. Let the pieces rest for another 30 minutes on the floured surface.
In a saucepan, heat sunflower oil (you should have at least 0.8 inch of oil in the pan).
Place the langoš into the hot oil, fry it on one side until golden brown then turn.
Repeat with the remaining langoš dough and serve while it’s still hot.
You can eat it simple, sprinkled with chopped garlic, but it’s a lot better when it’s doused with garlic water (mix 1-2 large garlic cloves with salt, little bit of oil and water). You can also top it with sour cream and grated cheese.
