Baursak or Boortsog is fried dough. This amazing Kazakh food has two uses. It can be bread and also it is a popular sweet like a donut. Baursak is a very easy and fast-making dessert.

Baursak (Boortsog) recipe

For making Baursak, add 1 tablespoon of yeast and 1/4 cup of water in 1/4 cup of warm milk and let it rest for 15 minutes when yeast is dissolved. Then, add 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 tablespoon butter or vegetable oil, and ¼ teaspoon salt to the milk and stir them. Add 1 egg, stir, then pour 2 cups of flour step by step (do not pour whole flour) and combine them to make a dough. Continue pouring flour till making the dough.

Grease a bowl and put the kneaded dough in it. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put a cloth on it. Let it rest in a warm place for 45 minutes. After 45 minutes, the dough is triple in size. Place dough on the floured surface. Then sprinkle a little flour on dough and make it thinner into 0.5 cm.

Cut the dough into circular pieces or any shapes you prefer. Heat 2 cups of vegetable oil in a pan, then drop dough pieces into the oil. The heat under the pan should be medium. When the color of the Baursak changed to a golden brown, turn it to another side and fry it too. Place fried Baursak on the paper towel.

For serving Baursak as a dessert, sprinkle sugar or pour melted chocolate on it (best suitable for children). Also, you can use it with jam or honey.
