Kosh Tele

Title: Kosh Tili
Categories: Cookies
Yield: 8 servings

3 1/4 c Sifted flour
(or a little more)
6 tb Granulated sugar
1 ts Salt
2 Eggs
3 tb Yogurt
1/2 c Milk
Vanilla or rosewater
Oil for deep-frying
Powdered sugar

One of the smallest and least-known ethnic groups in our country are the
Tatars. They represent an area officially known as Tatarstan, 500 miles
east of Moscow. This is a sweet they prepare on traditional holidays. KOSH
TILI means “birds' tongues”, in this case, the birds would have to be
pretty big. (G) Sift together flour, granulated sugar and salt. Add
eggs,yogurt, milk and optional dash of vanilla or rosewater. Mix well with
spoon, then pour out onto lightly floured work surface and knead until
smooth. Divide dough into 4 parts. Place 1 piece of dough on floured
board and roll out 1/8-inch thick. Using a knife or crimp-edged cutter, cut
into strips about 1-1/2 or 2 inches wide and 6-8 inches long. Using knife,
cut a 1-1/2-inch slit in middle of each strip. Take 1 end of each strip,
fold it through slit and pull out on the other side. Repeat with remaining
dough strips. Heat oil for deep-frying. Fry 1 or 2 dough strips at a
time, holding under surface of oil until puffed and golden brown. Drain
finished fritters in colander, then place on paper towels and sprinkle with
powdered sugar. Makes 8 to 12 servings.
NOTE: The recipe gave no frying temperature, so you'll have to FIND the
best temp. I guess.
