Halloween/Thanksgiving Themed Fried Bread

This bread is from Borneo, Indonesia, and is called wadai untuk-untuk. It is normally filled with sweetened coconut or mung bean filling, but I filled them with whatever the kids like (minced meat, chicken, jam, chocolate, cheese, milk powder, etc).

Since I did plan to decorate it with icing sugar, for this time I only filled the bread with sweetened coconut filling 😀

This fried bread is similar to Hungarian donuts called farsangi fank. They are best served warm yet great at room temperature as well!
