2 cups lukewarm water
4-5 cups flour
1 tsp salt to taste
1 package fresh yeast/ 2 tsp active dry yeast
1 ½ -2 cups oil for frying
Place the lukewarm water and the yeast into a bowl. Stir well to dissolve the yeast. Add the salt and flour; knead for 10 minutes, till dough becomes elastic. The more you knead the better your dough will be. Cover the dough with a plastic wrap or a clean cloth and let it rest for 2 hours in a warm place or till it rises up to double its volume..Place dough on the counter and punch to release air. Cut the dough into walnut or egg size pieces (as you like). Place them on the counter and leave for 5-10 minutes.
Meanwhile heat the oil in a saucepan or pot. Flatten dough pieces using your fingers (for about 1/3 inch thick). Fry both sides lightly. Dough will turn yellow. Then, place the fried dough pieces over a paper towel.
Serve Fried Dough warm or hot with cheese, cream cheese, jam/jelly or fruit preserves.
It is good to go at breakfasts or brunches.
