Puff Puff- Nigerian Snack

Puff Puff- Nigerian Snack

Puff Puff is a deep fried Nigerian snack made from flour, yeast, sugar, water. It is a soft, almost pillowy yet chewy snack. Puff Puff is not to be confused with 'Buns,' which is a richer Nigerian snack, due to the addition of eggs and milk. Full Recipe: http://www.avartsycooking.com/2010/08/puff-puff/

    @AvartsyCooking then u’ll give it another 15-20 mins to cook, then u can
    make it into ball shape or if it is not thick enough to make ball u can
    just put it into a bowl as it becomes cooler it’ll take the shape of the
    container u poured into ..u can eat it with different soups ( okra, kuka,
    egusi,ewedu, etc) . also some pple mix the corn flour with cassava flour to
    have a sticky/ waxy touch, thereby making it softer. this is just a
    summary, i’m not a professional cook .

    @shukzee oh! I had no idea it was the regular tuwo, but then again, I
    always thought tuwo was made from ground rice, no? Either way, thanks for
    enlightening us! 😉 I just learned something new!

    but my mom never made it…she primarily made chin chin and tht was often
    becuz its very very time consuming!!! But good snack nonetheless lol

    Greetings from Greece. We have exactly the same recipe(same ingredients)
    called ‘loukoumades’ BUT we drizzle them with honey or syrup after. Enjoy!

    sugar does not go with salt

    yoruba+igbo= nice features .

  14. Lechiffresix six says:

    those are some regular beignets.I suppose it is manioc flour that you used
    as base innit ? as for oil yh too much of it in most african dishes.we need
    to educate people on that.too many pot bellied men in 9ja. Beer+oil= bad
    combo .

  15. kIANNyl0v3 says:

    we dont set it aside tho, after we mix it then start deep frying
    them..theyy look yummmy

    Surely it is not rocket science to make sure the text in your video is
    readable?
