Coconut puff puff comprises of two types of ingredients, namely: dry ingredients which are flour; sugar; yeast; salt; nutmeg and desiccated coconut, and the wet ingredients are water, eggs and coconut oil for frying. The dry ingredients are mixed in a bowl until well incorporated, followed by adding the wet ingredients. Mix both dry and wet ingredients until well combined to form a batter. Then place the batter in warm place until it doubles in size. Time to fry - deflate the batter by mixing it and scoop some batter with your hand (or ice cream scoop or a spoon) and place it in the hot oil carefully and allow to deep-fry.
