This warm and spicy bread is delicious with any drink and makes a welcome change from cheese straws.
- 800g cake flour
- 10g dry yeast
- 15ml sugar
- 25ml cumin seeds, roasted
- 25ml caraway seeds, roasted
- 12ml salt
- 280ml hot (not boiling) water
- 60ml olive oil
- 750ml sunflower oil
Combine the flour, yeast, sugar, seeds and salt in a bowl.
Add the water and olive oil and mix together to form a sticky dough.
Knead the dough for 10 minutes on a floured surface. Return to the bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size.
Roll out a 30cm square (about 1cm thick) of dough onto a floured surface. Cut into long strips. Place in boiling-hot sunflower oil until puffed up and golden, and serve immediately.
