The main ingredient here is the farmer’s cheese. In the US, I can only find it in Publix stores, but you could also try and look for it at your local grocery stores.

1/4 cup sugar
2 packages (7.5 oz ea.) Friendship Farmer Cheese
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 and 1/3 cup flour

Spread baking soda in tablespoon, and pour the vinegar on top. Wait until it stops reacting, then mix in with the rest of the ingredients.

Gogosi-Prep4

Add flour and mix.

Gogosi-Prep5

Pour oil into a medium saucepan, to cover about 1/2″ of the bottom of the pan. Heat oil on medium-low heat. Add a small amount of the dough to the oil. When it starts to bubble, the oil is hot enough and ready for frying.

Gogosi-Prep6

Drop the dough by tablespoon into the hot oil. If needed, use another tablespoon to shape dough into a ball.

Gogosi-Prep7

Fry on both sides, until golden brown. Adjust the heat as needed, so the dough doesn’t brown too quickly on the outside and is raw on the inside.
