At the end of the 10 minutes the yeast mixture should have foamed. If this doesn’t happen, discard it and try again.

Pour the yeast mixture into the flour mixture and mix thoroughly.

Cover with cling film or towel and leave to rise for 90-120 minutes or till it doubles in size.

Pour oil into a deep pan. The oil should be atleast 3inches deep. Let the oil heat up and scoop the batter into the oil with your hand. You can also use ice cream scoop.

K’s Cuisine tip: For best result of the round shape use hand to scoop.

Test the oil by dropping a bit of batter in it. If it rises up after few seconds then the oil is ready.

Flip the  batter till it’s golden brown. Place on kitchen towel to drain excess oil.
