Chak-Chak (sweet dessert). Step by step

Chak chak is one of East national dessert, mostly cooked on holy holiday. I cook it anytime.


It is great dessert that u can keep for 2 weeks(but in my case it never lasts two weeks:))Just u have to put it in dark cold place, but not in a fridge. It is crispy and sweet, and even it takes some time for cooking it is not difficult. My husband loves to eat it just itself without honey syrup instead of potato chips:)



Ingredients:
5 eggs
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp milk
1 tbsp vodka
3 or 3 1/2 cups flour
500 gr vegetable oil for frying

1 cup sugar
1 and 1/2 cup  honey

 For decorating you can use different kind of nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, toasted sesame seeds and anything you want


Beat eggs , add salt, baking powder, milk and vodka. Very carefully add in flour stirring, when it began thickening, work with hands and make dough. Your dough must be not too soft and not too hard. Cover the dough and let it rest for 20 min.



Cut in 5-8 pieces, and roll each piece separately in circles and spread an flour on both sides. Cut the piece in stripes.


 Heat the oil in a deep frying pan, put the sticks and fry until light golden.
Set aside.



In a  pan put  the sugar and honey, then melt all, and simmer for 4-5 min, don't over boil it.
Pour until hot on your fried sticks and carefully mix it with wooden spoon. Quickly serve on plates and shape them with your hand (!!!!careful hot!!!!), gradually washing hands with cold water, or your hands will stick to Chak-Chak.

 Sprinkle some seeds or decorate it as your wish.

Bon appetit!
