Ingredients

  • vegetable oil for frying

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup water

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Oil should be at least one-inch deep.

  2. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Add water a little at a time until dough comes together into a ball and doesn't stick to your hands, about 5 minutes.

  3. Tear off plum-sized pieces of dough and flatten into 1/2-inch disks.

  4. Fry pieces of dough in the hot oil until brown on both sides, about 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels or napkins before serving.

Cook's Note:

You may not need the whole amount of water listed; use as much as you need to get the dough to a desired stickiness.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
