Puff puff are a little delicious snacks of happiness and you can’rmt deny how tasty they come in owambe parties, a segment of the menu you really don’t want to miss out on.
Peppered puffs are a spicy variety of the actual puffs you already know about, but in this case, we will be adding diced pepper and onions into the batter.
We will need:
- 1 and 1/2 cup flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons fresh yeasts
- 1 cup warm water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Groundnut oil to fry
- Sliced pepper and onions
- Flavour (optional)
Sift flour into big, dry bowl. Add sugar, yeast and salt and dry mix (add flavour if any). Gradually pour in water and mix until a sticky, soft dough is achieved. Cover the dough and allow it to sit for 40mins (this is when the yeast is activated and the dough begins to rise, ensure your bowl can accommodate this expansion).
After the batter must have risen, pour in your sliced pepper and onions and mix again.
Heat up your oil in a deep pot (ensure the oil level is not shallow). When the oil is well heated up, begin to scoop balls of dough into it for frying.
Occasionally turn the frying puffs over to allow all sides fry evenly and once you achieve a golden brown colour, it’s time to sieve it out. Continue until all batter is fried.
Your peppered puffs is ready!
