Method

Step 1

In a small bowl, dissolve sugar in the warm milk. Stir in yeast and set aside to bloom.

Meanwhile, add warm mashed potatoes, flour and salt to a large bowl. Once combined, stir in bloomed yeast mixture. Add oil and begin to knead.

Knead dough for 4-5 minutes, until smooth and elastic.
 

Step 4

Transfer back to the large bowl and cover. Let rise for about 40 minutes, until doubled in size.

Step 6

Heat about 1 inch of oil in a large frying pan to medium heat.

Flatten each ball and fry Lángos for about 2 minutes each side or until golden, then flip.
