Coconut Mandazi/Mahamri - Step by Step
These are PERFECT for breakfast with a cup of tea, and go really well as an accompaniment to many meals...especially grilled meats.
Step 7: After sitting for about an hour, the sections will have risen.
Step 8: Test the oil temperature by placing the back of a wooden spoon into the center of your frying pan. If the oil is hot enough to use, bubbles will immediately come up from where the tip touches the bottom of the pan. If no bubbles come up, then give the oil a few more minutes to heat up and test again. :)
Step 9: Put your mandazi sections into the hot oil. Splash the oil over them to help them puff up. Don't let them puff too high before turning otherwise they can form cracks. When they start puffing up, turn them over
Step 10: This is after they have puffed and been turned over. Now fry until the color changes.
Step 11: This is about mid-way through the frying, the color now is a nice light brown. I prefer them slightly darker so I let them fry a bit longer...
Step 12: There we are! Perfect color. Now remove them from the hot oil, and continue frying until all are done.
