DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the flour, sugar and water together until an even dough.
  • Add the 2 teaspoons of oil into the dough and continue mixing.
  • Meanwhile, put the 3-4 cups of oil into a pan/pot on the stove and set on high.
  • Beat the dough until soft yet firm.
  • If the dough is still not yet as tough, add another half a cup of self rising flour and knead the dough.
  • Once completely mixed and firm, flatten the dough with a rolling pin (dough should be about 1/8th of an inch thick).
  • Cut the dough into shapes (I like to make hearts and circles, as well as triangles and squares).
  • Carefully lay the cut out dough shapes into the pan and wait for the edges to brown. When they reach a medium brown, flip the dough and cook the other side.
  • When the mandazi has finished cooking, lift out of the pan and keep in a covered pot.
