African Puff Puff RECIPE

Ingredient :

2 cups warm water

2 1/4 teaspoon active dry yeast (1 packet)

3 1/2 cups flour

1/2- 3/4 cup sugar

1/2 Tbsp salt

Oil for deep frying


Mix salt, sugar, water, and yeast .

Set aside for 5 minutes.

Add flour and mix.

Let the mixture rise for approximately 1- 2 hours

In a large sauce pan, pour vegetable oil into a pot, until it is at least 3 inches (or about 5 centimeters) high (too little will result in flatter balls), and place on low heat.

Test to make sure the oil is hot enough by putting a ‘drop’ of batter into the oil.

If it is not hot enough, the batter will stay at the bottom of the pot rather than rising to the top. Using your hands grab a little bit of mixture at time and drop in the oil.When the oil is hot enough, use a spoon to dish up the batter, and another spoon or spatula to drop it in the oil, sort of in the shape of a ball.

Fry for a few minutes until the bottom side is golden brown.

Turn the ball over and fry for a few more minutes until the other side is golden brown.

Use a large spoon or something like that to take it out of the oil.

Enjoy it warm or cold.
