It seems I am gradually becoming a foodie these days as all I think of is cooking and eating, I wonder why. Whatever the reason; I’ve decided I won’t be going down this road alone, I am going to ‘infect’ as many people as I can with the food syndrome. So, I am here again with a snack most Nigerians love, and I have noticed a hit with the kids as well.
Buns are fried dough balls with a crunchy outer texture, and they are quite similar to the puff puff but differ in texture. Let’s fry some buns.
450g all-purpose flour
2tbsp. baking powder
1 cup Water (warm)
2tbsp. powdered milk
tsp. – teaspoon, Tbsp. - tablespoon
- Mix your dry ingredients (minus the sugar and the milk) in a bowl
- Whisk your eggs and mix with the butter
- Make a well in the middle of your dry ingredients and pour the mixture (egg and butter) into it. Mix till it looks lumpy.
- Dissolve the sugar and the milk in the cup of warm water making sure the sugar
- Make a well in the center of your mixture and pour the liquid into it while mixing. Mix till you get a stretchy dough. Set your dough aside for a few minutes.
- Heat oil in a frying pan
- Scoop tablespoons of dough into the hot oil; reduce the heat and fry the buns till it turns golden brown
- Transfer the fried buns to a paper towel to drain the excess oil. Leave to cool.
Your delicious buns are ready.
The only issue I seem to have with the buns is storage; is it possible to store until the next day? If you have any idea or solution to this, please leave it in the comment section, thanks.
