(guys i always use my bread machine for kneading the dough but if you don't have one just knead it with your hand until smooth and elastic)
3-on the bread machine bucket pour the yeast mixture follow the milk,flour,the melted butter and the egg.close it and press the dough cycle let the machine do the kneading.
4-when its done you can leave the dough inside or you can take it out and put it in the greased bowl and cover it let it rise for 1 hour or until it double in size.
5-after 1 hr.take the dough out and flattened it and divide it into a desired size
6-roll the dough until long enough to make a twisted braid.do this into all the divided dough
7-let the dough rest for 1/2 an hr.
8-while it resting prepare the oil for frying.
9-put 4 cups of vegetable oil in the heavy pot(i use cast iron pot here)

11 to coat a sugar the best way to do is put 1/3 cup of granulated sugar into a ziploc bag then,put 3 pulpit/shakoy at a time.the shake until it well coated.
