Chak-chak is a very unusual oriental honey cake, which is small pieces of dough mixed with a lot of sweet honey syrup.
You can buy chak-chak in many stores, but it is better to cook it at home. First, it’s quite simple. Secondly, this is the only way you will be sure that the dessert contains only healthy and high-quality products. This is especially important if chak-chak is intended for children.
An important role is played by the quality of honey: it must be fresh, sufficiently liquid and not too viscous.
Flour for the dough is taken only of the highest quality wheat. A lush and airy delicacy is obtained if the dough came out soft, light and uniform.
Pieces can be different, but in Tatarstan they often cut the dough into strips. Bashkirs and Uzbeks can serve chak-chak, in which the pieces will be larger. Quite often balls are rolled out of the dough.
Deep-frying oil should be well heated, so that the pieces quickly become golden and crispy, but not overdried, remaining soft inside.
Chak-chak is eaten with hands. Small pieces are broken off from the slide, or cut with a knife. It is convenient to take chak-chak with you as a snack - the pieces are light, compact, and at the same time satisfying. If done correctly, chak-chak can be stored for up to 90 days.
