  • 6

    Pinch each dough circle with a fork on the center to allow the dough not to rise too much while frying.

  • 7

    Preheat oil over medium heat and, when the oil is hot, bring it down just a bit and fry the yaniqueques.

  • 8

    Once fried, place them on a platter lined with paper towel to absorb any excess oil and sprinkle them with salt.

More About This Recipe

  • Melissa BaileyYaniqueques are a typical Dominican street food mostly sold in the beach area. They are a simple but deliciously crispy fried-dough snack loved by many. Dominicans enjoy them any time of the day and in many ways, like: topped with salt, drizzled with ketchup, plain with a cup of hot chocolate, sprinkled with cheese or folded almost like an empanada; and filled with cheese, meats and veggies. The traditional yaniqueque is flat, round, savory and big.
