Thank you to all at FRUA Seattle chapter for having me over this past weekend. It was great to meet you all and your beautiful kids! By popular demand I am posting the recipe of Kazakh "doughnuts" called "BAURSAK" in Kazakh language.
1.5 lbs flour
1 cup warm milk
1 cup warm water
3.5 table spoons of oil
0.35 ounces which is about 1 and 1/3 packets of dried active yeast
1 tea spoon of sugar
Mix flour, dried active yeast, salt and sugar in a bowl. Add warm milk, warm water and oil. Mix everything until smooth. Set aside in a warm place for 1.5 hours and let it rise. After 1.5 hours knead the dough again and set it aside this time for 0.5 hours. After half hour passed. Flatten the dough with fingers or rolling pin about 1/3 of an inch. The dough is sticky so make sure to sprinkle flour, but don't over do it! Cut different shapes with a cookie cutter or just cut "diamond" shapes with a knife. Heat the oil high, then reduce the heat to medium and start frying BAURSAKs on both sides until golden.
Serve with your favorite fruit preserve. Can also be served with honey, powdered sugar or as is.
