Easy Puff Puff Recipe

Hello friends, so nice to know I have you hear with me, reading all my post and leaving me your wonderful comments, thank you all so much, you guys rock!.

So today am keeping the post short and straight to the point. Puff puff is a popular Nigerian street snack, it’s very soft, sweet and deep fried to perfection, it’s a snack that both kids and adults alike enjoy so well, also no Nigerian party is complete without it as it always makes its way to the small chops stand.

This snack can be very addictive and I don’t blame anyone cos once you have had a taste of it, you will keep going back for more.

Personally while I was pregnant with my first time child it was all that I craved and there was this woman on my way to the hospital that Fry’s puff puff, chai you need to see me queuing up for puff puff, and the woman was so kind that she would attend to me first because of my huge belly before anyone else. As much love as I have for it, i have always been scared of making it because I heard a lot of stories about it not coming out right.

After so many attempts at making it and ending up with pancake looking stuff, i finally nailed it and I haven’t stopped making it since then. This recipe am showing you today is fail proof, just make sure your follow it exactly and in no time you will be a pro at making one of Nigeria’s most popular snack.

Easy Puff Puff RecipeIngredients
2cups flour
Vegetable oil for frying
4tablespoons sugar
1teaspoon salt
2teaspoon active dry yeast
2cups of warm milk (mix your powder Milk with warm water)

Note- the milk or water you are using must be warm not hot, this step is the most important as it could make or break your mixture, the water should be warm enough to give to a child to drink, when you touch it you shouldn’t feel hot at all just warm please.

Directions

Easy Puff Puff RecipeTake a large bowl and pour in all the dry ingredients, mix very well and then gently pour in your milk or water and mix till you get a mixture that is neither too thick nor running, it should look like the picture below. After mixing, take a kitchen towel and cover the bowl, place in the warmest part of your house, usually while mixing I turn on my oven and turn it off once am through mixing and just keep the bowl inside the oven. Allow it to rise for about 45mintues, when you open it, there would be bubbles on top and it would have doubled in quantity, just use your hand or a spoon and mix it again to let out all the trapped air.

Easy Puff Puff RecipePlace a deep pot on medium heat and pour in about 1litre of vegetable oil, allow to heat up for at least 10minutes,test your oil but scooping some of the batter into it and see if it floats back up, if it does then your oil is hot enough, if not just allow it heat up some more.

Using a soup spoon or cooking spoon, scoop the batter into the oil carefully, allow it to fry for about 1minute and flip so the other side can get brown as well, take them out of the oil and strain in a filter, pick one and throw into your mouth so you enjoy the fruit of your labour. Repeat same process till you are out of batter, if you are like me, eat half in the kitchen while it’s still very hot and serve the rest.Easy Puff Puff Recipe

Enjoy your puff puff with a chilled drink of your choice and see you in my next post, dont forget to leave your comments.

Well this muffins has carrots and coconut making it a very healthy and filling meal and not just a snack.

As with most of my recipes, this one is very easy to make and doesn’t need much skills, I used fresh coconut in this recipe, I simply took the coconut flesh out and cut it into tiny shavings, it’s always best to used fresh coconut, but of you can’t get one, feel free to use the store bought desiccated coconut, so let’s get to it guys.

In a large bowl put all of the dry ingredients together (flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, nutmeg) and whisk to combine.

In a separate bowl mix together the egg, milk, melted butter ,milk and vanilla extract , then pour this mix into the dry ingredients and whisk to combine properly , add in your grated carrots as well as your coconut ( save some of the coconut to place on the top of your muffins),  mix this in until all is combined.

NOTE– the batter will be thick and a bit lumpy but don’t worry no need to over mix it or your muffins will turn out hard instead of light and fluffy.

Scoop the batter into your prepared pan or mug , be sure not to fill them to the top , this gives took for your muffins batter to rise , place a few coconut shavings on top of your batter and  place them in your pre- heated oven , bake these for 15minutes or until a tooth pick inserted comes out dry and clean.

Serve your muffins with hot cup of coffee or cocoa with a side of protein and enjoy. This is a perfect breakfast for weekends when the entire family can sit together and savor every taste and flavour.

Yummy Coconut Rice recipe1

All the coconut lovers please raise your hands let’s know ourselves

Coconut is one of my favorite fruit to eat; you can pair it with soft hot bread, boiled corn or just eat it as a snack on its own! Sigh, it has so many nutritious health benefits which are why there is a recent hype to it, these days this is virtually nothing you can’t make with or from coconut.

Coconut Rice one yummy and equally cost effective meal that you can make which will satisfy the whole family, my secret to making it extra delicious and pocket friendly is by making the milk myself from fresh coconut, instead of buying the store packed ones.

For today’s recipe we will just be making use of the coconut milk and trust me this is so yummy and easy to prepare, even if it’s your first time you won’t get it wrong, so let’s get cooking.

INGREDIENTS

3cups of rice

4cups fresh coconut milk

Red chilly peppers

Tomatoes

Small onion

Green pepper

Salt and seasoning

2tablespoon ground crayfish

Vegetable oil 4tablespoon

Bay leaves

DIRECTIONS

Wash and parboil your rice for 10-12 minutes, strain and set aside.

Wash and slice all your veggies (tomatoes, peppers and onions ) , place a deep sauce pan on low heat and add in your vegetable oil, allow to heat up a bit then you add your veggies in no particular order.

Sauté the veggies for a few minutes, now it’s time to include your Bay leaves (3leaves is enough) salt and seasoning, leave to cook for three minutes and then add your coconut milk.

Once you have added your milk, leave to cook for five minutes, give it a good stir and taste to make sure your salt and seasoning is adequate, as this is the base for your coconut rice.

After five minutes, add in your rice, stir to incorporate and leave to cook for at least 15minutes or till the rice is cooked through and soft, by now I bet the aroma of the coconut milk is making you salivate, lol, allow the rice to dry of every liquid and serve garnished with some the green peppers and any side of protein that you like.

So guys that’s your simple, easy and extra yummy coconut rice! Kindly try out this recipe and let me know how it went in the comment section.

P.S the more pepper in this dish the tastier it is, but feel free to use pepper to your discretion.

To make the coconut milk, simply break open your coconut, remove the flesh and chop it into tiny bits, blend it with enough water in your blender and strain using a cheese cloth, yes it’s that easy.Yummy Coconut Rice recipe1
