DUTCH SNACKS: OLiebOLLen

Oliebollen (olie mean oil, bollen means balls) are tradionational Dutch snacks. They are tradionationally eaten on New Year's Eve in the Netherlands. But you can also buy them during fun fairs throughout the year. Before I go home after shopping I usually buy oliebollen. I like them with matching cup of coffee.
Here is the recipe if you wanna try our traditional snacks:
500 grams flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 egg
80 grams raisins
4 grams yeast
450 ml lukewarm milk
1 apple slices
few drops of lemon juice
Put yeast in a mug of lukewarm milk with sugar. Let it stands for 10 minutes or until milk produces foam. Mix flour with salt. Make a hole in the middle, pour the yeast and the rest of the milk. Knead into a glass mixture. Beat the egg, add the raisins, aplles and lemon. Cover the bowl with a towel. Let it rise about one hour on a warm still free place and must be 1.5 times its original size.
Heat oil in a pan to 160 degrees celsius. Get a tablespoon of the mixture and fry it until brown about 8 minutes. Put the oliebollen on  a paper towel. Sprinkle them with powdered sugar.

About this Blog

I make this blog for foreigners who will live in this country, THE NETHERLANDS. Foreigners who are engaged or married they have to learn a lot of things about their new home like the culture, architectures, landscape, government, dikes etc. Especially the Dutch language which is very important in their social life. It is very difficult if they cannot communicate with other people. Most people speak Dutch, only few speaks English.
For visitors and readers, this will give you an idea what this country is. This small country ranks no. 5 in the economic stability in EUROPE. Their architectures like palaces, castles, dikes, ports (air and sea) are amazing.
Their culture is very interesting.
