“If the dough is too runny, add in more flour. The dough should be soft but firm enough to form the shape of a doughnut.”
Our home cook, Zaiton, is mindful of her health when it comes to such sweet treats, by replacing white sugar with the natural Gula Melaka, giving it a fragrance and natural caramel taste to this dish!
“The secret ingredient that gives the shine is the white sugar.”
Don’t be fooled by the ordinary appearance! The deceptively veiling rich flavor from the sweet potato and the crunchy sugar coasting will make you crave for more!
