Fried dough is delicious! This is my take/recipe on Macedonian fried dough. No proving, no yeast, 2 minutes in the food processor and good to go.
Its soft, fluffy and delicious, and I’m serving it with my favourite store bought ajvar and sliced tomatoes. The only thing missing from this plate is a mountain of feta cheese as I forgot to buy it.
1 cup of plain flour
1 cup of self-raising flour
2 tablespoons of cold butter
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of warm water.
Vegetable oil for frying
(Extra handful of flour for rolling the dough).
Add the flour, butter and salt to a food processor and blitz for one minute. Turn the processor on again adding the water 1 tablespoon at a time. Blitz for approximately one minute after all water is added. It will form a ball and should be soft and only slightly sticky.
On a lightly floured surface, roll small balls of the dough to around 1/2 centimetre thickness using a rolling pin.
Heat a cup or two of vegetable oil in a small frypan (enough to deep fry) and carefully place two dough discs into the oil. They will bubble and puff slightly, so just lift the edges with a spatula and flip when golden brown (they only take around 30 seconds each side), just keep an eye on them.
Drain on paper towel and serve with ajvar, salad and cheese. Sliced red onion and cold meat would be fab with these too.
