5. Cover the bowl with an aluminum foil  and leave the batter to rise for about 45 to 50 minutes. 
 Tip: To know if the batter is ready for frying, you will notice some air bubbles in it and also that the batter has doubled in  size and is thicker and stretchy.


6. Heat up the oil in a deep pot until hot; Punch down the batter,Scoop onto your palm and drop into the hot oil.
Tip:  the oil should be deep enough to cover an egg, so that when you drop the batter into the pot, you won't get a flat puff puff.

    1. u need the yeast to make the batter rise well, but you can omit the nutmeg and can add milk too if you like.
