A slightly unhealthier food than the others we have posted here, Lángos is a typical flatbread originating from Hungary. We say slightly unhealthier. This is an incredibly unhealthy meal that should be eaten every once in a while.
Basically it is a flat bread fried in oil and covered in cheese, sour cream and garlic dressed. We know right. This recipe is a slightly healthier take on the traditional Lángos, though, so don't be put off. Treat yo' self.
