Hi, I'm Ieva. I was born in Lithuania, but I currently live in the United States. I am a teacher and a recent blogger. Traveling, reading, and cooking are among my favorite things. My culture and language are a part of who I am, and therefore I love sharing it with others.

Recipe’s Ingredients:

  • ½-1 loaf of bread (for a classic recipe – rye bread is preferable. But any other kind should work well too, as long as it does not crumble easily).
  • 1-2  slices of garlic.
  • salt.

Recipe’s Instructions:

  1. Cut the bread into strips, each about an inch wide.
  2. Heat some oil in a skillet. Put the pieces of bread in the pan with oil and fry it on both sides until crispy.
  3. When the bread is done, place it in a bowl or a plate and add garlic by either rubbing it onto the bread directly or mixing bread with the minced garlic.
  4. Add salt to taste.
    Enjoy!

  1. I hope you still maintain this blog. What kind of oil do you prefer? Do you ever add minced garlic to the oil or only after it is done frying? I have been to Riga, Latvia 4 times and never bothered to ask anyone this recipe. Also, I know it typically is served with a chili mayonnaise. Do you have a recipe for this?

  2. Hi Thomas! You can use vegetable oil, or olive oil. I add the minced garlic to hot bread after it’s done frying. You can do it immediately after you take one batch out and while the other is cooking. I have not tasted it with chili mayonnaise… It sounds good, though! Enjoy:)
