Sift the flour into a bowl, stir in the yeast liquid, the beaten egg and the melted fat, mix to a dough and knead until it pulls away cleanly from the sides of the bowl.
Place the dough in an oiled plastic bag and leave in a warm place to rise until doubled in size.
Turn the risen dough onto a lightly floured surface, punch down and knead until smooth.
Roll out to a rectangle about 9 inches by 7 1/2 inches and cut it into 1 1/2-inch squares (by cutting 5 strips one way and then cutting across 5 times the other way).
Place the dough squares on an oiled baking sheet and cover with oiled plastic wrap.
Leave in a warm place to rise until almost doubled in size.
Meanwhile heat the fat in a deep fat fryer to 360°F.
Fry the Dalken a few at a time until crisp and golden.
Drain on paper towels and then dust thickly with the sugar.
