            (or a little more)
       6 tb Granulated sugar
       1 ts Salt
       2    Eggs
       3 tb Yogurt

     One of the smallest and least-known ethnic groups in our country are the
   Tatars. They represent an area officially known as Tatarstan, 500 miles
   east of Moscow. This is a sweet they prepare on traditional holidays. KOSH
   TILI means “birds' tongues”, in this case, the birds would have to be
   pretty big. (G)   Sift together flour, granulated sugar and salt. Add
   eggs,yogurt, milk and optional dash of vanilla or rosewater. Mix well with
   spoon, then pour out onto lightly floured work surface and knead until
   smooth.    Divide dough into 4 parts. Place 1 piece of dough on floured
   board and roll out 1/8-inch thick. Using a knife or crimp-edged cutter, cut
   into strips about 1-1/2 or 2 inches wide and 6-8 inches long. Using knife,
   cut a 1-1/2-inch slit in middle of each strip. Take 1 end of each strip,
   fold it through slit and pull out on the other side. Repeat with remaining
   dough strips.    Heat oil for deep-frying. Fry 1 or 2 dough strips at a
   time, holding under surface of oil until puffed and golden brown. Drain
   finished fritters in colander, then place on paper towels and sprinkle with
   powdered sugar.   Makes 8 to 12 servings.
     NOTE: The recipe gave no frying temperature, so you'll have to FIND the
   best temp. I guess. Wis/Gramma
