Every Nigerian party has featured these adorable rolls. To be honest I don’t think you can call puff puff a roll, its more like a bite sized doughnut. Personally every time I think of puff puff I can almost hear the owambe (party) music and smell that party rice. (doing a mini dance as i’m writing this). What I have realized however, with puff puff is that it doesn’t have to be type cast to the small chops basket on your table. It’s amazing all by itself or however you choose to dress it up.
2 cups of All Purpose flour
1 tablespoon of yeast
3/4 cup of Sugar
1.5 cups of warm water
Pour in your sugar and yeast into a bowl and mix together.
Pour in the flour and mix all ingredients.
Pour in water slowly and stir in as you pour.
Ensure you keep stirring till mixture is smooth.
Cover with a cloth and allow to rise for about 3 hours.
Heat up the oil and use your hand to scoop out small portions of the mixture and plop in the oil.
Fry until golden brown and serve warm.
