Who doesn’t love donuts? I know I love them. And I love the spicy and salty ones. So today here is my recipe for salt and spicy donuts.

These salty cheese donuts are famous and are named: “Langosi cu branza sarata”

Here is the classic recipe for donuts. Until so far nothing new. For my salty and spicy donuts we need salty cheese and chili peppers. Don’t put all the sugar in the dough if you don’t like them sweet, spicy and salty.

Chili goes in the dough or you can add it in the cheese. It is your choice. My husband loves pepper so for him I am adding pepper.

Even the kids could eat them if they love spicy food. I usually make them for me very spicy. I just finished my red chili jam and I am gone use the donuts to taste the jam. Yummmy!!!

So got to the steps where you finished the dough and now you are making the donuts. You finished the donuts for the kids and now you are preparing the salty ones.

Cut square pieces of dough (20 cm). Add the cheese in the ½ part and then bring the other part of the dough and form a rectangle covering the cheese. With your fingers press the margin so the cheese stays inside.

All you have to do is fry them on both sides.

Serve them hot with beer. Enjoy!

  1. Delicious looking langos. Do you ever do the Hungarian version rubbed with a cut clove of garlic and sprinkle shredded cheese on top? What kind of cheese did you put inside? I’m thinking a combo of feta and a dry curd sheep’s milk. I like the idea of spreading them with jam … cherry would be lovely. Or rosehip. 🙂

  2. The closest thing I have seen to this in the U.S. is a cheese Danish, but that doesn’t have the spicy or salty vibe going. This is intriguing. It’s supposed to be cool this weekend — finally — I think I have to try this. 🙂 Thanks.

  3. We have a very similar dish in Slovenia. It is also called Langos, but we don’t put cheese in it. The dough can be made with yoghurt (I prefer this one) or with potatoes. And then when they are friend we put on garlic, yoghurt or you can eat them sweet with nutella. 🙂

  4. Delicious! When I lived in Romania I observed what I called “Langosi Friday” and would pick one up from a street vendor on the way home. I always ate the ones filled with nutella or apples, but cheese sounds lovely. I am excited to give this a try!

  5. Oh, oh, oh. those look good. I’m generally not a big fan of donuts, but this could be the thing that brings me to the team. I can’t say I’ve ever had a savoury donut, and adding cheese to anything is pretty much a good thing!
