How to Make Hvost with Condensed Milk
- Prepare the dough: In a deep bowl, mix the condensed milk, egg, sugar, salt, and vanilla sugar (if using). Stir well.
- Add the flour: Gradually add the flour, stirring the dough. Add the baking powder and continue to add flour until the dough becomes elastic and does not stick to your hands.
- Knead the dough: Transfer the dough to a table sprinkled with flour and knead it for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth.
- Form the sticks: Divide the dough into several parts and roll each into a thin layer. Cut the layers into strips about 1 cm wide.
- Fry the hvost: In a pot or deep frying pan, heat the vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, lower the dough sticks into the oil and fry them until golden brown on both sides.
- Sprinkle with sugar: Place the ready hvost on a paper towel to get rid of excess oil. While the hvost is still hot, sprinkle it with sugar.
- Serve: Serve the hvost warm or let it cool and serve as a dessert or treat with tea.
- You can add a little cinnamon or cardamom to the dough for extra flavor.
- If you want to make the hvost sweeter, you can roll it in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon after frying.
- Be careful when working with hot oil to avoid burns. Use tongs or a spoon with a long handle to lower and remove the hvost from the oil.
- Hvost is best stored in an airtight container to keep it crispy.
