Hungarian Fried Dough (Lángos) is a delicious street food, mostly eaten for breakfast. The Hungarian Fried Dough is crunchy on the outside, soft in the inside, it’s brushed with garlic-infused oil, topped with sour cream and cheese!
The Hungarian Fried Dough (Lángos) is one of my favorite Hungarian food, I love its taste, its texture, also it brings back so many great childhood memories!
If you ever come to Hungary, it’s a must-to-try, it’s a main street food! You can find it on festivals, on fairs, on markets and most of our cities has at least one Lángos stall, so no excuse! 🙂
I remember as a kid, on every Sunday morning, we went to the local market, bought Fried Doughs, my brother and I shared one, in meanwhile dad and mum had their coffees, then we walked around, watched the vendors selling their goods. So, every time I see, smell or eat Fried Doughs, it brings such a nostalgic, happy feeling, also I love make it at home!
It’s not a complicated recipe, you can make it ahead and ready within a few minutes, oh and it’s sooo filling! I absolutely love it!

Garlic Infused Oil
So I mentioned we (well, most of us…) eat our Fried Dough with garlic-infused oil. It’s so easy to make.
The best about these garlic infused oils that it’s versatile. You can use it on your steak, on your veggies or your toast.
So, all you have to do is to grate 5-6 cloves of garlic, mix it with 1 cup oil and a pinch of salt. Leave it for a few hours or overnight. Thanks to the oil, it won’t go bad for looong, long time, just add oil and garlic to it from time to time.
It’s soo good with the taste of garlic, the sour cream, and the cheese, I can’t even tell! You have to try it out!
