Method

 

Combine the flour, sugar, salt and spices in a mixing bowl. Rub the oil in by hand, and sprinkle in the yeast. Add the milk and water mixture until it forms a soft dough.
Cover the dough and leave to proof in a warm spot until it has doubled in size – this usually takes about 4 hours. Once risen, roll the dough into 20 small balls.

To make the syrup, combine the ingredients in a saucepan, stir and bring to a rapid boil. Turn down to a simmer.
Heat the oil and fry the dough balls until golden. Transfer to the simmering syrup for 1-2 minutes. Drain well and leave to cool.
Roll in coconut. Delicious served with tea.

Smelly microwave?
Remove cooking smells from your microwave oven by simply slicing a cucumber, spreading it out on a plate and cooking it in the oven at 100% for five minutes.
