Bulgarian Fried Dough Mekitsi Recipe

 

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • dash of salt
  • oil for frying

Preparation

Pour flour in large mixing bowl and make a well in center. Add eggs to well and slightly beat together with baking soda and salt. Add yogurt and water and knead until mixture forms into a soft dough. Cover and let rise for 20-40 minutes. Tear off small portions of dough. Roll into balls about the size of a golf ball. Do so with oiled hands and flatten by pulling dough outwards while maintaining a circular shape such as you would a pizza or you could shape into a heart for special occasions. Deep fry until golden brown on each side. Serve hot.
