About this recipe:The western world's favourite snack is yours with this easy to follow recipe. Just like chapati, you can make the dough the night before, cover and keep in the fridge overnight. That way, all you have to do is heat oil, fry and serve. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream for a comforting snack.
In a large bowl, mix flour, 4 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, salt, mace and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Create a well in the centre of the mixture, and pour in milk, oil and egg. Thoroughly stir into the mixture.
In batches, drop the mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls into the hot oil. Fry on all sides, 2 to 4 minutes, until golden brown. Drain on kitchen roll.
In a plastic bag, mix 200g sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. While still warm, place balls a few at a time into the bag, and toss to coat.
