Shakoy Cooking Instructions:

  • Using a large bowl sift All purpose flour, add salt and yeast then mix very well.
  • Make a well at the middle and pour the water then mix until it forms a dough.
  • On a clean surface sprinkle flour and knead the dough until it becomes smooth then form a ball.
  • In case the dough is still too sticky all you need is to add a little flour, then knead more until you get to the right consistency.
  • In another clean bowl, grease it with oil, place the dough on it and cover with clean cloth and let it rest for 1 hour, this process will double the size of the dough. 
  • When the dough rises, punch down and knead then cut in your desired sizes.
  • Roll the dough into a long stick and from a twist.
  • Place the shakoy dough on a baking tray and cover with a clean cloth and let it rest for one hour to rise.
  • In a large frying pan heat Canola oil in a medium heat, drop the shakoy dough in batches and fry until  the color becomes golden brown.
  • Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels, drop in a bowl of sugar and roll.

    I surely miss shakoy. When our neighbor makes them in the afternoon, almost all the kids in the neighborhood gather together and wait for newly fried shakoy to buy. 🙂

    These look really good and easy to make. It’s a very simple bread dough (essentially French bread) that is fried and coated with granulated sugar. I want to try this next weekend.
