My parents are visiting from the UK, and I am loving cooking and trying new recipes with my mum. Some of these bring back memories from my childhood growing up in Malawi. 

These scrumptious little pastries are a great accompaniment to ice cream or just served as an afternoon snack.

2 Cups plain flour
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Tsp baking powder
1 Tbl semolina
1/3 Cup ghee ( or melted butter)
1/2 Cup milk
Oil to fry

1. Heat milk in a pan and add the sugar, stir until melted. Add the ghee/ butter
2. Add the remaining dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, add the liquid mixture to make a soft dough. 
3. Divide the dough into 3 balls and roll out into a circular shape approx 22 -24 cm, using a sharp knife cut into diamond shapes
4. Heat oil in a deep pan and fry until golden, when slightly cool, dust with icing sugar.

Divine! These are best eaten on the day. 


Till next time
