Mandazi is a type of East African doughnut that is often served as a snack or breakfast food. Here is a recipe for making mandazi at home:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup fine semolina flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 tbsp melted butter or vegetable oil
- Oil for frying
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, semolina flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and melted butter or oil.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until a soft dough forms.
- Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for a few minutes until it is smooth and elastic.
- Divide the dough into small balls, about the size of a golf ball. Flatten each ball slightly with your hand.
- Heat a large pot or deep fryer with oil over medium heat. The oil should be about 350°F (180°C).
- Carefully place the mandazi into the hot oil, a few at a time, and fry for about 2-3 minutes on each side until they are golden brown.
- Remove the mandazi from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel.
- Serve the mandazi warm, with a sprinkle of sugar on top if desired. Enjoy!
