Hello my foodies! Today I am going to teach us how to make puff-puff.

Puff-puff is a popular snack in Nigeria and in some other countries in Africa. It is also known as 'buflot' in Ghana, 'ligemat' in Sudan and 'Kala' in Liberia.

Puff-puff is unique since it is not baked but fried in deep hot oil. It has almost the same texture with doughnut when it is fried, but I assure you, it's yummier.

It is now popular as 'small chops' in weddings. It can also be used as dessert.

I have used the basic recipe of my favourite cooking tutor Sisi Yemmie which is available on YouTube but have modified it to suit my taste.

Ingredients

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
Pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
A handful of grated coconut
1 cup water

Method

I. Sieve the flour to aerate it and remove any debris

II. In a small plate, mix the yeast and little sugar with warm water. Cover it until it becomes foamy. There are instant yeast one can just mix with the flour.

III. In the flour, mix all the dry ingredients properly.

IV. Add the yeast solution and egg and mix.

V. Add a little water to make it slightly gelatinous. Do not pour so much water because when the dough rises, it becomes lighter. You can add the shredded coconut now.IMG_20210221_085225_238.jpg

VI. Cover and keep in a warm place until it rises. You can immerse the bowl in semi hot water to fasten the rising process.

VIIWhen it has risen, mix again with your spatula.

VIII. Now you can fry in the already hot oil until golden brown.
