Maandazi

Maandazi created by Nyteglori

I found this on africanchop.com. I was intrigued as it uses cardomom, one of my favorite spices.

ingredients

directions

  • Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, cardamom and salt in a large bowl.
  • Whisk egg and water together in a small bowl. Make a well in center of dry ingredients and add egg mixture. Mix together gradually with a fork until mixture forms a soft dough. If it's too sticky, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of flour (one at a time).
  • Cover dough with a wet towel or plastic wrap and leave 30 minutes or longer.
  • Heat 4 cups of oil in a deep, heavy pot (cast iron is preferable) until is reaches 360°F
  • While oil is heating, roll dough out on a floured surface into a rectangle ½ inch thick. Use a sharp knife to cut into 20 equal rectangles.
  • Fry maandazi in batches of 5, for about 5 minutes per batch, turning to brown both sides. Hint: Turn the mandaazi before it gets too puffy, or the air bubbles will prevent you from turning it at all.
  • Remove from oil when both sides are golden brown. Serve warm, dipped in powdered sugar if desired.

    Served rolled in Cinnamon & Sugar. This were a little tough but good. I think they would better had they been fried for a shorter time at a higher temp.
