It seems like the world-conquering tour of lángos in unstoppable. More and more people hear about it, give it try and also hopefully send its word all around the world. It is not too complicated to make lángos and it is definitely worth to give it a try.
Lángos is a deep fried flat bread made of a dough with flour, yeast, salt and water (a kind of bread dough). Lángos can be made with yoghurt, sour cream or milk instead of water, a dash of sugar along with salt and sometimes with flour and boiled mashed potatoes, which is called potato lángos. It is eaten fresh and warm, topped with sour cream and grated cheese, garlic or garlic butter, or doused with garlic water. A new way of making lángos is a stuffed version which basically means stuffing the dough with the goodness of the desired toppings.
Traditionally, lángos was baked in the front of a brick oven, close to the flames. It was made from bread dough and was served as breakfast on days when new bread was baked. Nowadays, lángos is deep fried in oil.
The name comes from ‘láng’, the Hungarian word for flame. You can find lángos vendors on the streets or try making it at home. Both versions have their own feel to it. If you want to know how to make this popular Hungarian food, watch the video!
