As I most recently have a little time, I had been browsing on the internet last week. Looking for fresh, challenging ideas, inspiring meals that I have never tested before, to impress my family with. Looking for quite some time unfortunately couldn’t come across any interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I ran across this delightful and simple treat by luck at Suncakemom. It looked so delicious on its photos, that called for quick action.

It absolutely was simple enough to imagine the way it is made, its taste and how much my husband will probably love it. Mind you, it is extremely easy to keep happy the man when it comes to puddings. Anyway, I got into the website and used the precise instuctions that have been combined with wonderful photos of the task. It just makes life quite easy. I can suppose it is a bit of a effort to take snap shots down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you usually have sticky hands thus i seriously appreciate the hard work she put in for making this post and recipe easily followed.

With that said I’m encouraged to present my own formulas similarly. Appreciate your the thought.

I had been fine tuning the main formula create it for the taste of my loved ones. I must mention it was a terrific outcome. They prized the taste, the structure and loved getting a delicacy such as this in the midst of a lively week. They ultimately wanted lots more, many more. So next time I’m not going to make the same mistake. I am gonna multiply the volume to make them delighted.

Mix the ingredients in a bowl by hand until the dough comes together into a ball. If it sticks to the hand or the side of the bowl, add more flour to it. If it seems dry and falling apart, add more water to it.

Add oil to the dough ball and knead it further.

Flatten the dough into a circle shape.

Divide the dough into eight equal parts.

Make balls from the eight dough parts.

Flatten the dough balls into ½ ” / 1.5cm tall circles. This would yield about 4″/10cm wide circles.

With an oily hand rub together the cracks on the side of the dough if present.

Pour oil into a pan and fry one side of the circle shaped dough on medium heat. It takes about 5 minutes to achieve a golden brown color and hard outer layer.

Flip over the dough and fry the other side as well.

When both sides are done place them into the oven for 10 – 15 minutes on 350°F / 180°C.

Fill with any filling of choice.
