Baursak is one of the national dishes of Kazakhstan. Basically, it is deep-fat-fried triangles of dough. One day, the staff in our village got us all together and taught us how to make it.
Sasha chops the wood to start the fire.
Once the fire is started under the giant kettle, Aigul pours two bottles of oil into the pot.
Meanwhile, Denise and Sarah cut up the dough. (Johnny and Marissa "supervise.")
Laura fries the baursak. Yum, yum!
