Oil fry Ghost I always call this
Farina ask me for the recipe so here is it

300g of plain flour sieve
1 tsp of yeast
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of sugar or a bit more if u like a bit sweet
1/2 tsp of salt
mix all the ingredient into a big bowl
add in the hot water *not boil *
mix it into a dough and leave it to rise
for 0ne to two hour is fine .make sure cover it with a tea cloth and leave in the room temp

look at the below picture
u will get to know all about it

the slim u cut the bread will more puff when u fry it

stick two slips together so when u fry it it will look like the
oil fry ghost

make sure when u fry it fast turn it round so it will rise and will puff up too

look if the bread is slim u can see after fry is hollow and it test real nice

cos my fryer is not a wok so my bread is short

Salt & Turmeric said...

farina dear :
the dough don't rise the same as bread , it only rise a little when u fry then u will see it puff when u add the water make sure add it a little at the time and mix it the flour until it turn into a soft dough
the dough will a bit stick is ok and just leave it at the room temp for 1 to 2 hour then u add a little flour to kneed it then u make it like wat I did by the picture
