For about 20 units. Serves 6
- 150g Self-rising flour
- 1 pinch of salt
- 100ml water
- Zest of 1 whole lime
Mix everything in the bowl. Sieve the flour in a large bowl, add the salt and the lime. Mix well, then, add the water and work the dough to obtain a lump free stretchy dough.
Cover the dough and leave it to rest for 10 minutes.
Meantime, heat about 300ml of vegetable oil. If you’ve got a chip pan, use it. What we are looking for, is to have enough oil so the dough ball will rise to the surface within seconds after being dropped in the oil. The oil should be really hot.
Once the oil is hot. Cut the dough in small pieces and put them into the oil… 5-10 piece at a time depending on the size of your pan. Fry for 3-5 minutes until the balls are brown all over. PS: You won’t be able to use a knife to cut the dough… you will have to be creative with a spoon or your fingers… It is a very sticky dough.
Can be served warm just rolled in granulated sugar.
I served mine with a lime syrup. The recipe will be in the next post. But you can also pipe jam or hazelnut chocolate in the individual dough ball…
