Mekitsi (fried dough buns) with lemonade, a recipe of grandma Elenka

There is no way that I show you Grandma Elenka’s Walnut buns, Grandma Elenka’s Langidi, without showing you Grandma Elenka’s MEKITSI.

These ones here are with lemonade and are super delicious!

When I was preparing them, I cut the ingredients in half from her recipe, which I had copied in my notebook, and still I fried only one part, and with the remained dough and I made a bread. I wonder for whom she cooked so much that the ingredients in the recipes are like for a whole regiment. Well, it is no suprise, remembering how many children we used to gather in the summer in our village – cousins ​​and neighbors… It was an unforgettable time and I’m very sorry that our children cannot experience the same emotions.

And here is the recipe for mekitsi. The dough is super universal and with it you can make many other delicacies such as bread, salty crackers, pizza and whatever your imagination decides.

Enjoy! 🙂

5

Knead the dough and if it sticks a lot, add more flour.
Note: the dough may seem bigger to you, but I must admit that I prepared a double dose of the products listed here, because I followed Grandma Elenka's recipe. Since the dough was really huge, I made mekitsi from only half of the dough, and from the other half I baked a loaf of bread, which I will show you in another recipe.

6

Place the dough into a bowl, cover it with plastic wrap or a soft cloth and leave it in a warm place for about 45-60 minutes until it doubles in volume.
