Lalanga which is named as pouring, cızlama in Anatolia, is a food which is evaluated as sweet and salty. You can also prepare salted lalanga by adding 50 grams of cheese and a pinch of salt to the following measurements. I present the recipe with a yeast that can be made in 13th century which I took from Ali Eşref Dede. You can also prepare it with a yeast you like. Today, these kinds of fries are also made with olive oil.
