  • Then  I cover and leave to rest for 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Before the time is up, I heat up some oil on medium heat; the oil should be deep enough to cover an egg so that the Nigerian buns will come out with a good shape. I also do an oil test with a skewer and the bubbles you see(as in the video recipe) shows that the oil is ready for frying.

  • So now I scoop the batter with my oiled or wet hand and drop it gently into the hot oil; you can also use a spoon or an ice-cream scoop for this, to get a perfect round shape.
