We recommend that you supplement today's menu with delicious, golden and incredibly tasty donuts: we offer, of course, under our strict guidance, to cook baursaks, the recipe of which will not be difficult, but the process will be interesting and exciting. Donuts can be round or square, they can also be unleavened or kneaded from yeast dough. Looking ahead, we’ll enlighten you a little: there may be baursaks on kefir, the recipe of which is slightly different from ours (we have milk in the recipe), it can also contain cottage cheese and eggs are added.
There is no stable, indestructible recipe - each nation cooks to its own taste and in accordance with its own traditions. We decided to offer you a baursaki recipe with photos and detailed descriptions in the Kazakh way.
Baursaki is a rather unusual word for us, but among nomadic peoples it is a historically everyday dish, which is as common as traditional bread in our country. In Kazakhstan, Bashkiria, Tatarstan, Kyrgyzstan, these donuts are in the forefront in popularity and treat them there, first of all, to the most welcome guests, who are thus shown the greatest respect and reverence.
The recipes differ slightly, because the Bashkir baursak recipe, for example, which is almost the same as the Tatar baursak recipe, is kneaded with milk and served with koumiss or fragrant green tea. The historical essence of this dish is that the nomads, being in constant motion, could not afford any lengthy cooking processes, everything had to be as fast as possible: pieces of dough were thrown into a cauldron in boiling, bubbling oil and after 30-40 seconds bringing out the finished meal.
In the modern world, Bashkir baursaks, and even Tatar baursaks, are often mixed with kefir. And it’s hard to argue with this, because kefir-based baursaks are absolutely in no way inferior to the original version, only a slight shade in taste will allow a true gourmet to catch the difference.
A wonderful, very appetizing baursak recipe at home, which we brought to your picky gastronomic court, is unlikely to be able to decorate a diet or diversify a fitness menu. But the amazing mood and just an incredible burst of vivacity from a couple of these lush donuts are guaranteed to be beneficial and increase vitality for the next few hours of your possibly busy and difficult day at work.
