Hungarian Fried Dough – Lángos is a delicious street food, mostly eaten for breakfast. The Hungarian Fried Dough is crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, it’s brushed with garlic-infused oil, topped with sour cream and cheese!

The Hungarian Fried Dough (Lángos) is one of my favorite Hungarian food, I love its taste, its texture, also it brings back so many great childhood memories!
If you ever come to Hungary, it’s a must-to-try, it’s a main street food! You can find it at festivals, at fairs, on markets and most of our cities has at least one Lángos stall, so no excuse! 🙂
I remember as a kid, every Sunday morning, we went to the local market, bought Fried Doughs, my brother and I shared one, meanwhile dad and mum had their coffees, then we walked around, watched the vendors selling their goods. So, every time I see, smell or eat Fried Doughs, it brings such a nostalgic, happy feeling.
It’s not a complicated recipe, you can make it ahead and ready within a few minutes, oh and it’s so filling! I absolutely love it!
Hungarian Fried Dough – Lángos
Hungarian Fried Dough – Lángos
- 5 tbsp Kefir / Sour Cream
- 1 package Active Dry Yeast
- 1/2 cup Milk
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 Egg
- 3 1/5 cups Flour
- Put the ingredients to a stand mixer.
- Use the dough hook attachment to knead the dough together.
- Cover the mixing bowl with clean foil and place it in the fridge for about 1 hour, but overnight would be better.
- Spray (or spread) a tray with oil.
- Divide the dough into 4 pieces.
- Heat oil in a high wall pan.
- With oily hand carefully stretch the dough without making it too thin.
- Place the dough in the hot oil, away from you so it won't burn you.
- It takes about 1 minute per side, but fry it until both sides are a golden color.
- Serve them while they're still hot/warm.
- Spread some garlic-infused oil, top them with sour cream, then grated cheese.
So I mentioned we (well, most of us…) eat our Fried Dough with garlic-infused oil. It’s so easy to make.
The best about these garlic infused oils that it’s versatile. You can use it on your steak, on your veggies or your toast.
So, all you have to do is to grate 5-6 cloves of garlic, mix it with 1 cup oil and a pinch of salt. Leave it for a few hours or overnight. Thanks to the oil, it won’t go bad for a long, long time, just add oil and garlic to it from time to time.
It’s soo good with the taste of garlic, the sour cream, and the cheese, I can’t even tell! You have to try it out!
