Ingredients

    2.5 cups plain white flour
    200 ml warm fresh full cream cow's milk
    120 grams white sugar
    0.25 cup vegetable oil
    1 tablespoon yeast (instant)
    1 Egg (medium)
    0.25 teaspoon cardamon powder

Directions

1. Mix all the ingredients together and beat at a low speed for 10 minutes. Cover and leave to rest in the same bowl for 5 minutes.

2. Divide the dough into 5 equally sized portions

3. Shape the portions into smooth balls and place on a lightly greased tray.

4. Keep the flat balls covered for about 15 minutes

5. Flour a working surface and further flatten each ball with a rolling pin, to make a circle of approximately 7.5 inches across

6. Cut a circle with a sharp knife into 4 equal traingular pieces and place on a lightly floured tray, keeping a gap of about 2 fingers between the pieces.

7. Repeat the process for the rest of the balls. Leave to rise for about 1 hour

8. Deep fry the mandazi in hot oil one at a time over a medium-low heat turning to other side and cook untill golden brown. They should puff up and rise once dipped into the oil. Drain excess oil by placing on a sieve covered with kitchen paper towels.
