Greek fried dough strips – Lalagia


  • In a mixer’s bowl add the water, the yeast, and mix with a hand whisk.
  • Add the sugar, the flour, the cinnamon, the cloves, the olive oil, and salt. Ideally, you should set the mixture aside for 15-20 minutes until the yeast is activated.
  • Beat with the hook attachment at high speed, for 5-7 minutes, until the ingredients are homogenized and there is a firm dough.
  • Transfer to a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and allow about 1 hour for the dough to double in volume.
  • Place a frying pan with the sunflower oil over medium heat.
  • Cut 30 g of the dough and shape it into a strip, about 40 cm. Wrap it in a spiral shape or however you like, and add it to the pan.
  • Fry in batches for 3-4 minutes, until they are golden.
  • Remove, place them on paper towels, and serve with honey, sesame seeds, and cinnamon.
  • Alternatively, serve with honey, feta cheese, and thyme.
