Description

A traditional East African food that is typically served for breakfast or dessert and is great with chai tea.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1-½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1-½ teaspoon Butter
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg, Beaten
  • ½ cups Milk
  • ½ cups (or So) Vegetable Oil, For Frying

Preparation

In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Cut in butter, then add sugar.

In a separate bowl, mix together the egg and milk, then add it to the dry mixture.

Heat up about 1 1/2 inches of vegetable oil in a sauce pan or skillet.

Mix the dough until all is incorporated. Roll it out and cut it into small circles or triangles and put it into the hot oil. Flip halfway through and fry until deep golden brown and they look/ feel cooked through. Transfer them to a paper-towel-covered plate to drain the excess oil and sprinkle with sugar while they are still hot.

I think you mean 1 and 1/2 tablespoons butter. This recipe was alright- I had to burn the outside in order to cook the inside, but I think that’s probably user error. If you could give suggestion as to an oil temperature, also?
