Posting this for safe-keeping, will tweak it later. Kolobok (kuh-luh-bOck) is a dough ball from a Russian fairy tale. These fried gems are fun for kids, tasty calcium for adults. To be clear, I wouldn't feed this to my toddler because of the fried aspect, but I loved them when I was little!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Combine first 7 ingredients to form a very thick batter.
- 2(Original recipe calls for 1/2c flour and crumbs, but even with double the flour mine was too sticky to roll.).
- 3Heat oil in a wide frying pan.
- 4(According to Good Eats, more oil is better since the oil is absorbed when oil temp drops, which happens when too much cold stuff is added to not enough oil. I used enough to fill the pan with 1/3 of an inch).
- 5Use a tea-spoon to quickly scoop and drop dough balls. Since the batter is pretty thick, use your finger to make the drop.
- 6Alternatively, form balls roughly 1" in diameter, then drop into oil.
- 7Do not crowd the pan or drop so many that you won't be able to flip them comfortably.
- 8Fry past golden-brown, about 90 sec. Adjust oil temp if needed.
- 9Flip using 2 forks.
- 10Fry the other side.
- 11Carefully lift each Kolobok out onto racks lined with paper towels, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
- 12Repeat until batter runs out, and serve whatever hasn't been stolen from the plate. Top with sour cream or possibly syrup/jams? Should keep well overnight.
