This recipe is our favorite. It embodies essential protein nutrients and leaves your palate with a delicious, fluffy, creamy sensation. As its name implies, milk puff-puff requires no addition of water.

Ingredients

  • 1500g of All-purpose Flour

  • 300g of sugar

  • 20g of Instant active dry yeast

  • 2 nutmegs (grated)

  • 20g of salt

  • A tin of condensed milk

  • 7½ cups of 2% milk

  • 5 cups of vegetable oil

Directions

  • Mix all dry ingredients, that is, the all-purpose flour, sugar, yeast, nutmeg, and salt, until well combined.
  • Pour condensed milk. Then, gradually add your 2% milk and mix. I like to use my hands to mix to ensure I get a lump-free batter that is not too thick or too thin.
  • Cover the batter with a film wrap and a kitchen towel. Then, keep it in a warm place to proof for 45 minutes.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Remember it is deep-frying, so ensure your frying pan can accommodate about 3-inches oil without spilling over after adding your puff-puff.
  • Scoop puff-puff batter into the oil. You can either use your hand or a spoon to scoop in order to get the perfect round-shaped puff-puff. There are other amazing hacks for scooping the perfect round-shaped puff-puff. See the video below.
  • While frying, use a two-pronged fork to flip puff-puff balls to ensure it is well done all round, perhaps until it is golden brown.
  • Place balls in a sieve or colander to drain excess oil, then on a paper towel.
  • Serve and enjoy.

Some Things You Can Eat with Milk Puff-puff

Honestly, Puff-puff can be enjoyed without a side dish, more like a snack. I remember my dad used to buy puff-puff every Sunday morning as an appetizer. We would savor every bit of it with so much love.

Milk puff-puff, however, can be eaten with the following to enjoy it better and have a greater feel:

  1. Small chops, samosa, and ketchup
  2. Mini beef skewers (stick meat)
  3. Fruit drinks
  4. Beverages
  5. Dipping sauce

Why is my puff-puff watery?

The obvious reason for a watery puff-puff is adding too much water or milk to the batter. Therefore, when mixing ingredients, adding water or milk to the batter should be done gradually.

Why is my puff-puff hard and flat?

Several reasons could be responsible for hard and flat puff-puff.

The yeast used might be a bad one. Check your yeast to see if it has expired before usage. It could also be because of leaving your batter in oil for longer than it should. This could largely result in hard balls. So, fry our puff-puff for about 3-5 minutes maximum to get the desired golden brown color.

Your puff-puff can also be hard because you added little water than enough to the batter, thus getting a very thick consistency. Next time, try adding more water to get a batter that is not too thick and not too thin.

Your puff-puff can be flat due to the amount of time it is left for it to rise. Depending on the kind of yeast used (ensure yeast is not weak or expired), the puff-puff batter should not stay longer than 45 minutes – 2 hours to rise. For example, the instant active dry yeast used in the recipe above takes a maximum of 1 hour to rise, while dry yeast can take up to 2 hours.

Puff-puff can also be flat due to the oil temperature and the shape of the fryer used. The oil shouldn’t be too hot. About 170°c is a good temperature for the batter to float. The fryer should also be such that it contains enough oil for deep frying.
