Total time: 
Serves: 9
  • 1½ cup of all purpose or wheat flour
  • ⅛ tsp paprika(optional)
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 1½ tsps active dry yeast
  • 1 and .5 cups luke warm milk or water(eye ball the liquids)
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ½tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp of cinnamon or cinnamon sugar(for garnishing)
  • half of a very small onion(a little trick I learnt)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • oil for deep frying
  1. Sift the flour. Mix with all the dry ingredients. Make a well in the middle of the flour and gradually pour the milk into the well and mix with the flour(please eye ball the water/milk as you mix). The mixture will be really soft. Cover with a cheese cloth or a clean kitchen towel and set it in a warm place for about 45minutes to rise.
  2. Heat up some oil until 350 degrees, add some onion to heat up and fry with the oil; then with a table spoon or bigger drop little balls of the risen dough to fry for about 3-5 minutes on each side
  3. Serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon or cinnamon sugar
To keep the dough from sticking to the spoon make sure to dip the spoon in some warm water before scooping balls of the dough
