easy puff puff recipe

Puff puff is a traditional African snack that has flour, yeast, sugar, salt, butter, and water as its typical ingredients. It is called different names in the various African countries; in Sudan, it is called ”ligemat”, in Liberia it is called ”kala” and in the eastern and southern parts of West Africa it is widely known as ”mandazi”. 

Every Nigerian party or wedding must have puff puff in attendance, it is in our constitution. In recent times, puff puff doesn’t move alone as it has samosa, spring roll, peppered meat, and chicken making it a platter or as it’s popularly known ”small chops”. 

As a big lover of puff puff, it meant a great deal finding a puff puff mix with instructions:  ”just add water”.

Was it worth it? Keep reading to find out.

I got the 700g pack and the instructions said to mix 2 cups of mamadoc puff puff mix with a sachet of puff puff improver (which I found out to be yeast by the way) then add 300ml warm water and mix.

When the dough is properly mixed, cover it up and keep in a warm place for an hour. 

Then fry in hot oil and your puff puff is ready. Quick and easy. 

Side note: I added banana and coconut flavors to my mix and an extra 1/2 cup of sugar… Don’t judge me, please.

Even though the process was so easy, I observed 300ml of water was too little to properly mix 2cups of mamadoc puff puff mix and after letting the dough sit for an hour it didn’t rise as much as I expected it to. Probably cause the yeast quantity wasn’t enough for 2 cups. 

My puff puff was filled with flavor and I loved how it came out.

I’ve used the mamadoc pancake mix, tried out the puff puff mix and I wasn’t disappointed. I highly recommend trying out this brand. It’s made in Nigeria too.
