Theepless (Sweet Fried Bow Knots)


  • 4 cups self-rising flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar plus 4 tablespoons sugar
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • Oil for cooking
  • 2 cups honey
  • Cinnamon
  • Coarsely chopped walnuts


  1. Place the flour in a big, deep bowl. Mound the flour and make an opening in the middle.
  2. Meanwhile, beat eggs with the sugar, lemon zest and oil. Place the egg mixture in the opening and knead the dough until firm. Divide the dough equally many times and roll each division into thin pieces. Cut the pieces in triangle sections.
  3. Heat the oil well and stick the dough strips in the hot oil one by one. Quickly, using two large forks roll each strip of dough in a cylindrical shape and cook the pieces until golden brown. Take them out and place somewhere to cool.
  4. Heat the honey with one cup of sugar until boiling. Spoon out the froth that forms and lather the ready theepless with the honey syrup and sprinkle cinnamon and walnuts as a garnish.
