Hungary - Lángos

This Hungarian street food can have a variety of toppings but this sour cream and cheese combo is the most popular. Street food is my favourite kind of food. Hurray :D

300g flour
250 ml water
1 tablespoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
sour cream
grated cheese
garlic granules
oil for frying

Mix the water and salt together then stir until the salt is dissolved.

Sieve the flour into a bowl and stir in the yeast. Mix the water into the flour to form a dough. Add more flour if the dough is too sticky.

Leave the dough to rise for about an hour. Cut the dough into 8 and form into rough circles.  Fry the circles in hot oil turning halfway through so they are browned on each side.

When they are done, drain them on kitchen towels. Spread a tablespoon of sour cream on each one.

 Cover the sour cream with grated cheese and sprinkle with garlic granules. Eat while still hot.

Lángos are delicious! It's amazing that such a simple dough can taste so good when fried. The bread was crisp to the bite on the outside but soft and springy on the inside. The topping was lovely too, the cheese melted slightly and the garlic complimented it all perfectly. Everyone enjoyed them and I made them again the next day by request. I'm keen to explore some different toppings to try on them another time too. Lovely!
