- 2 cups Flour
- 1 tbsp Baking Powder
- 3/4 tsp Salt
- 1 cup Lukewarm Water
- 1 quart Oil (Canola or Vegetable work best)
- You can either sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a professional grade sifter… or you can be like me and simply whisk it together in a large mixing bowl.
- Once you have all the dry ingredients sifted together, slowly pour in the water and stir it together with a rubber spatula until is turns into a sticky dough.
- Use your hands to continue mixing the dough until you’ve completely mixed in all the water. You will end up with a sticky mess, just keep going until it’s done
- Allow the dough to rest a few minutes then divide it up into sixteen equal sized balls. I do this by making a big ball, and the cutting it in half, and those in half, and those in half, and then all of those in half again.
- At this point, pour your oil into your fryer, or frying pan, and begin heating it to 177°C (350°F).
- You can either use a rolling pin to make neat little circles a quarter inch thick, or you can use your fingers to knead them into circular shapes about a quarter inch thick… I like using my fingers.
- Once the oil reaches the correct temperature, simply fry the dough circles one at a time, until they turn light golden brown.
- Immediately place them on a plate covered with a paper towel to remove the excess oil.
