  4. Cover the dough with a damp cloth or plastic wrap that’s bean brushed with oil and allow to rise until double (about an hour).
  5. Roll the dough into balls with your hands (brush your hands with some oil to stop them from sticking) or roll the dough out flat on a floured work surface and flatten with a roller & cut into rectangular.

  6. Heat up the oil at a medium temperature. Break the dough into balls and fry until golden-brown.
