MAHAMRI/MANDAMBRI/MANDAZI (WITHOUT COCONUT MILK)
Mahamri (also known as Mandazi) are sweet deep fried individual deep fried African Swahili donuts/buns popular in East African. This African donut is usually served in the morning with tea or mbaazi (pigeon peas cooked in coconut milk). The Mahamri/mahambri is traditionally made using cardamon and coconut milk. I would therefore like to share this recipe for making mahamri WITHOUT the use of coconut milk for those moments when coconut milk is not available or you just forgot that you have run out of it in your pantry! The recipe is same as for 'normal' mahamri, just a slight difference in ingredients and addition of a simple technique.
SERVINGS: Makes 20-25 pieces
Using a Machine?: Make sure you use the dough hook/attachment.
(Once mahamris have risen, it is time to deep fry them).
Arrange the mahamri in a plate.

MORE INFORMATION & TIPS
1) If you are using a cup for your measurements, then use the same cup to measure all the ingredients as required and specified above.
2) Do not add too much hot oil to the flour otherwise you end up with mahamri that have oil spots (similar to cheetah skin!).
