Add lukewarm water and mix into a soft dough.

Transfer dough onto a lightly floured surface, knead for at least 10

Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover with a cloth and leave to rise in a
warm place until double in size.

Heat oil in a deep saucepan.

Divide dough into balls (your preferred size), fry in the hot oil until golden
and cooked through.

Drain on absorbent paper and keep warm.

Serve warm filled with atchar, white liver or with dry snoek fish.

Also perfect when served with tea or coffee.

Make the dough the day before and let it rise slowly in the fridge

This will give the vetkoek or bread a lovely musty flavour.
