Langosh is my English husband’s favourite Czech snack – it’s actually Hungarian but Czechs do seem to like it a lot, and so does my English other half. The correct name is actually lángos but we’ll stick with the English pronunciation and spelling. It is a kind of fried flat bread, which you can get in Czech fast food places, at fairs, campsites etc. along with klobása or smažák. 

There are several recipes for this Hungarian flat bread but they all have one thing in common – they’re pretty easy. Langosh is not difficult to make and even if you’re not the best of cooks you should be able to pull this one off.  I have tried a few langosh recipes but the one I’m about to give you has come out tops.

When it comes to toppings, those vary country to country. The traditional Hungarian way seems to be soured cream, garlic and grated cheese, and also ham. Czech people like eating langosh with garlic, cheese and ketchup. What you put on is entirely up to you 🙂

Instructions
  1. Chuck all the igredients into a bowl and bring them all together. Work the dough on a floured surface until smooth and elastic - this will take about 5 minutes.
  2. Place the dough back into the bowl, cover with a tea towel and put in a warm place (a warm room will do) for about 30 minutes or until it has doubled in size.
  3. Once the dough has risen, divide it into 6 equal parts and roll them out into circles (doesn't have to be perfect).
  4. Pour about an inch of oil into a frying pan and put it on high heat. Fry your langoshes, one by one, for about 10 seconds on each side or until they're golden like in the picture. Use a pair of tongues for turning them over.
  5. Top with your favourite topping. Delicious 😉
