Ethnic doughs

The fried dough of many peoples. I must say I missed doughnuts while I was in England.

Exactly where and when the first fried dough appeared is the subject of much speculation and one that is covered under the History portion of this site. What can be agreed upon is that almost every culture has its own version of fried dough, be it savory or sweet, with or without a hole.

Those bismarks look really, really good and this is the second time this week I have been tormented with the thought of zeppole.

They have Gulab-Jamun, but not the delectible, sugar-dipped Jellabies - India's hot sugar-pretzle?

Wow. Thanks for the links. Both of them. :)

I must now devote myself to a quest for jellabies and zeppole!
