How to make Lemon Mandazi Bites (A More Zesty Flavour)

  5. Gradually add the warm water bit by bit as you mix until you get the right dough consistency.

  6. Work the dough for 1-2 minutes and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside for 5-6 minutes.

  7. Add oil to the fryer or pan and start preheating to 190-200 degrees Celsius.

  8. Dust the surface and roll out your dough to about 1 inch thickness.

  9. Cut into 1.5 inch square shapes or 2 inch long by 1 inch wide pieces.

  10. Deep fry them, turning every 1 minute to achieve an even golden brown on both sides.
