Honey Syrup Glaze
Beat yogurt until smooth and thin. Mix with baking soda and salt. Sift flour in gradually until mixture can barely be dropped from a spoon. Heat oil to 375 degrees F. Using two wet teaspoons, drop spoonfuls of dough, a few at a time, into hot fat. Or wet hands and shape pieces of dough into 2 or 3 inch sticks and drop into fat. Turn once so both sides become golden brown. Allow about 5 minutes for frying each batch. Drain on paper towel and serve with syrup of your choice. Makes about 2 dozen crullers.
Known as "zalabiya" when in stick shapes, or "awwamaat" in dumpling shapes, these crullers are served in Lebanon and Syria during the Christmas season and most especially on Ghtas, January 1st, which commemorates Christ's circumcision. It is said that on that day trees kneel in prayer for the Holy Infant.
