Lángos ~ Hungarian Fried Bread

Lángos from Hungary

Lángos is a deep fried flat bread made of a dough with flour, yeast, salt and water. It is a popular street food from Hungary and it is also called as the Hungarian Fried Bread. This flatbread is deep fried and topped with sour cream and grated cheese.

The cheese melts and oozes down. It is also rubbed with garlic or garlic butter. The other version of this dish is adding potato to the dough. So with cheese, garlic and other toppings it surely tastes like pizza and it is often referred as Hungarian Pizza.

In olden days, these breads were baked next to the flames of the brick oven and hence got the name Lángos, which means “flame”. However, these days Langos is deep fried and sold at festivals and fairs. So I was pretty excited about making this as I knew my kids will love it. I adapted this from Vaishali who posted it for a previous BM.

I made this along with the first batch of dishes couple of months back and along with the rest of the dishes, it did end up being too stuffing. Konda loved the cheese oozing from the bread and Peddu wanted more. They had the same complaints that I made so many at the same time and they couldn’t enjoy each separately. I said I will make it for them again but this time I need to click all the pictures and hence can’t spend entire cooking for just one dish. I guess by this time my family is tuned well to how it works. So I no longer get any complaints on that front!

Since Langos was on my todo list, I didn’t even spend time checking for any other choice for my A to Z International Street Foods. If you are interested to know the Flatbread for L, check this post.

Lángos | Hungarian Fried Bread

1 / 2 cup Potato boiled and mashed
2.5 tsp Instant Yeast

3/4 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Milk

For Topping
2 cloves Garlic minced
1 /2 cup Mozzarella
