Ingredients: Makes about 60 small size puff puffs
500g flour
150g white sugar
1 teaspoon yeast
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups of lukewarm water
Dried pepper or habanero pepper (based on tolerance level)


  • Using a scale measure your flour and sugar
  • Add the sugar to the flour
  • Add the yeast and nutmeg 
  • Add water
  • Using a hand mixer at lower, mix until smooth and  lump free (about 2 minutes). The hand mixer makes this process so easy.
  • Cover your mix with a foil paper and put in a dark spot for 1.5hrs. I put mine in my oven or sometimes my kitchen cabinet.
  • After 1.5 hrs your mix should look like the image below. It should be fully risen and have a stretch to it.
  • Heat your oil  to 350degrees Fahrenheit in your deep fryer. An alternative is to also use a deep pot
  • Chop your habanero pepper and then add to your mix OR add your dried pepper into the mix
  • Using your hand scoop the mix into your hand and drop into hot oil. Alternatively you can use a spoon(it determines size) to scoop it. I just prefer doing it the traditional way.
  • Let it fry until golden brown
  • Take out of the deep fryer and place on paper towel to remove excess oil 
With a little jazz for extra sweetness (sprinkled confectioners sugar)
