  • 1 loaf frozen bread dough
  • Oil for deep frying


  1. Thaw the bread dough overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. About 1 hour before using, remove it from the refrigerator and tear the dough into about 20 pieces. Roll each piece between your hands to form long rope shapes. Let them stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
  3. Heat oil for deep-frying. When oil is ready, take each strip of dough and pull, twisting both ends before dropping into the oil. Deep-fry until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towels.

This is not in the original recipe, but you can dust them with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon if desired.
